Paper photo frame
From this master class you will learn how to make a frame from paper with your own hands. This is a very simple step-by-step lesson that can be learned in just a few minutes. The main plus of self-made paper photo frames is the simplicity of the materials (we will make them even without glue!) And technology. The craft will turn out beautiful and original, it will look very worthy.
If you need to give someone a photo, make this frame for your photo with your own hands. You will spend 5-10 minutes of your time, and the presentation of the gift will be completely different. The same goes for the idea to decorate a wall with photos: in order not to splurge on ready-made options, it is easier to make a lot of paper frames at home and decorate them nicely on a comfortable surface. By the way, these frames can also be made suspended - it is not difficult to pass a thread through them.
What do we need?
- frame template
- cardboard or thick colored paper (A4 will be enough)
How to do?
First you need to print a frame template. It looks like this.
If you are not able to make a printout, then make a template for a self-made paper frame with your own hands. To do this, you need to place a photo in the center of the sheet and draw its outline (or simply draw a rectangle of the appropriate size in the center of the paper). Then put aside strips of different size (alternate a strip 1.5 cm wide and 1 cm wide). Make recesses at the top and bottom - as shown on the template.
Next, we bend the drawn strips along the ruler. We start to wrap up the sides of the future paper frame for the photo. We do it carefully, so as not to mash the craft.
First, the short sides are folded, and after them the long ones. We need to insert the corners of the long sides of the paper frame into the corners of its short sides in order to fix the structure tightly.
If the paper is very thick and glossy, it makes sense to first insert a photo, and only then fold the sides. So she "sits" denser. If you are worried about the design, you can drop a little glue or use double-sided tape.
Pictures or cartons with favorite motivating quotes are often also inserted into paper photo frames.
