How to make a DIY papercraft mirror frame for your home
Give your home an instant spring update with Zoë Patching’s beautiful flower mirror
Bring the outside inside with this gorgeous floral mirror. Forget about having a spring clean – this mirror can easily transform a room and looks great either hung up or leant against a wall.
It’s a quick and easy way to give a tired-looking mirror a new lease of life! Plus, unlike the real thing, paper flowers will last through spring and beyond.
Zoe has used pretty colours of non-patterned papers to die-cut and roll two different styles of quilled flower, using dies from the Sara Signature Sew Lovely collection. These have been arranged onto a background frame, hand-cut to fit the mirror in white mount card.
The floral frame is finished by adding smaller pre-made paper flowers between the larger quilled booms.
