bread and butter 2 help!

Well at last I'm beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. These are the last of the six small pieces, the first are on the the previous B&B post, that I wanted to mount and frame for our show.

They were a lovely set to make, but I did struggle a bit with mounting them on the foam board. I laced the backs in the proper manner, but when it came to doing a mitre on the corners, I found it was too small an area to work like that so had to resort to just folding the corner in.

Does anyone have a solution to this problem or know of some good instructions? I think it was made worse by using the foam board, as cardboard would have been thinner, but I wanted that deep 3D effect.

Anyway they worked out OK in the end and have made quite a nice little collection.

One day to go now, so it's a bit nail biting!

Good luck for tomorrow Sharon.
No need for nail biting - your work is always very good and will be much admired.

Hi Sharon
This is probably a bit late - we have been visiting relatives and just got back.
Re your mounting - iron some vilene along the edges to extend them then turn them in and iron them down
or turn them in and iron vilene over the fold to hold it.
Difficult to help when not seeing the problem.
best of luck.
