Join us in this FUN and creative journey by making Fabric Frames to add your arts, using Cartonnage Technique!

Check all the details and when you are ready to Submit your art scroll down to the end of the page to do it! 

Making Fabric frames to match your art is easy and Fun!
Your art can be permanently fixed to the frame, or you can make it removable!
Make it in the size you need, or start with a frame DIY kit and create your art to fit it.
Have tons of fun making and submit your art for a chance to win great prizes.
Our recommendation is to join a unique and inspirational Online Course showing how to make the frames that also gives many ideas and details to make one-of-a-kind arts to be framed!
Frames can be wall art or can be added to a variety of other cartonnage projects, like boxes, books, albums, covers.

2) Framed No-sew Fabric arts
3) Framed mixed media arts (excluding fabric)

Join with as many entries as you would like, but limited to 3 different categories.
