How To Make An Under The Sea Home Decor by Monika Graefling-Gladysiak

Posted on March 03 2021

Hello everyone! I hope you have a wonderful day. It's Monika today creating an Under The Sea Frame using Rinea foiled papers.

We are going to use: Sapphire, Gold, Mocha, Blush, Turquoise, Emerald, Jade, Ebony, Silver Starstruck, Lavender Starstruck foiled paper, Box Frame cutting die from Crafter's Companion, scissors, a pencil, dot tool, black card, sea plants cutting dies, a piece of string, vellum, red liner tape and liquid glue.

Step 1:
Die-cut the frame 4 times out of black card, use Sapphire foiled paper to die cut the top of the frame (you can adhere double-sided tape on the back of foiled paper).
Put the elements together using liquid glue and cut the back panel out of the black card, but don't adhere it yet.
Step 2:
Create the sea waves using Sapphire and Turquoise foiled paper, use scissors to cut the lines. Adhere the waves onto black card using red liner tape. Adhere the frame to the wave panel, you can use double sided taper or liquid glue.
Step 3:
Die cut all the sea plants and fish elements using: GoldBlushEmeraldJadeSilver StarstruckLavender Starstruck foiled paper and adhere the plant on the bottom of the frame, use double sided tape only on the bottom part of the elements in order to shape them later.
Step 4:
Use vellum and draw the tortoise, you can use my template. Use a dot tool to draw all the elements of the turtle on the foiled paper. Attach the vellum using low tack tape or washi tape on top of the foiled paper. Fussy cut all the elements and use liquid glue to stick all the elements together. 
Step 5:
Shape the tortoise with your fingers to give it a 3D look, then use 3D gel glue or hot glue and attach it inside the frame. Your last step is to add all the small fish, a starfish and jellyfish.
Step 6:
You can attach a piece of string on the back and hang it on the wall.
Enjoy your beautiful creation!
Happy crafting!
