Unique photo frame

Why give money to photo frames when you can make them yourself. This frame is made of handy materials. The project is not difficult.

Create the basis

Cut out a thin “halo” from the cardboard – the diameter of the semicircle should be smaller than the size of your frame.

Fix flowers

Use glue to create your future frame decor. It is advisable not to leave any gaps, so paste the decor as denser as possible – the bud to the bud.

Paint the frame

I used a silver aerosol from a can and stained with a weight. If you plan to paint on a table, do not forget to close the surface.

Make the frame

We cut out the cardboard from the cardboard, the inner contour of which will repeat the floral decor of the frame.

Photo Frames

Find the right frames for photography, painting or embroidery – another adventure. How much do you need to work around stores to get a design that’s appropriate in size, design, and color? Obviously a lot. But there is also a simpler option – to frame it with its own. Because the picture frame with your hands from a tree does not allow everyone, we offer a simpler version – a cardboard frame.

Rip the cardboard box and draw a picture on one side of the frame for the frame. Cut out two cardboard pads with the size of the photo as well as a narrow stripe to form the back of the frame by folding it into the shape of the pyramid and the bindings. Draw a smaller rectangle on one of the cardboard pads – this is the front of the frame. Cut out the rectangle with a dummy blade. Do not cut directly on the table or countertop so as not to scratch the surface with the blade. Place a board or some other suitable object. In this case, we used the envelope from the picture. Glue the cut-out front for the other cardboard pad using a tape, skip one of the sides – the top or one of the side to have a place to put and remove the photo.

Apply a small amount of glue C 200 to a part of the frame. Take a small piece of napkin, place it on the glue-coated part, and gently grind it to get the effect of crushed paper. Continue to apply glue to a part of the frame, then stick small pieces of napkin in the way already shown. This should be the frame when you are finished. Seal well any space in the frame so that the picture of the package is not visible. Glue the triangular back in the middle of the back of the frame with a tape. If you do not want the colored part of the package to be visible, you can leave it on the inside of the frame. I personally like it to be seen because it gives a catchy appearance to the frame. Your frame is ready.

Our works

Because, in terms of construction, the mat-frame is a cardboard cut in the middle of the window, it is best to reduce by or pattern a stationery knife. It is much more comfortable than a scissors and cuts are smoother. Just remember before you start table covers all kinds of substrate, which is not a shame to reduce or scratch the process. In skarpbukinge when these works are used for cutting mat. But if this is not available in your household, you can put a glass, a plastic mat or a cutting board.

Cut out of a colored cardboard box with the dimensions of the future frame. Turn it and draw it from the wrong side of the corners diagonally. So mark the center of the rectangle. Also, away from the center to both sides of the vertical distance almost equal to half the width of the frames that make up your frame. Horizontal, respectively, measuring both sides almost half the length of the photo. And now, based on this layout, build a rectangle that will outline in the frame of the window.

Important! Use to mark a triangle. Line one side of a cardboard sheet at the edge, and measure the distance from the other. Otherwise, the window frame in turn curves.

Why should not it be measured along the whole length and breadth of the image of the future? This is for the purpose, so do not think about how to fix a framed picture. Left armor will keep it secure. To do this, cut from the front wall of the frame so that its inner periphery is less a photo 0.5 cm on each side.


Then everything is simple – take a breadboard knife and carefully cut through the window of our future internal mat. Team for this metal is better to take in order not to hurt the knife and cut grimace. Additionally, cut out a rectangle to the back wall and paste it into our three-sided frame. On the fourth side put the picture, and you’re done!


Tip: Use double-sided tape to glue the frame. Unlike glue, it does not deform the cardboard. Still, it should not dry – you can use the circuit immediately after assembly!
