Photo Frame Tutorial

hey peeps...

second post in fews mins...wow...
welll today i m going to post the tutorial of how to make  Paper Photo Frame

Supplies u will need...

1) Cardboard
2) Handmade sheet/ Designer sheet (lill thick will be better)
3) Scissors
4)Cutter
5) (Optional) Photograph (for size)


so....


Step1:
Take two cardboard pieces...i had made frame for 4'' by 6'' photo so i took 9'' by 11''...but u can take any size depending on ur choice...




Step2: Place the snap in centre of one of the cardboard (lets call it Piece 1)



Step 3: Trace the outline of pic and cut the window from cardboard with size lill less then the actualy tracing from all side so that photo can be holded properly when its ready



Step 4: Now place the Piece of cardboard on the designer paper and cut the sheet with size about 2'' more on all the sides then that of the Piece....


Step 5: Now trace a window and cut it out in designer sheet as shown in picture below





Step 6: Now paste the cut part inside as shown in pic below




Step 7: Now u have to paste the sheet...u can paste it along one of the length side of cardboard or along one of the width as you want to keep your photoframe...This is done in order to make the slot for putting the photo in it...





Step 8: Remember the cardboard Piece two....here comes its use now...
put the piece two on handmade sheet and cut it out such that handmade sheet is lill longer at one side of the cardboard (This side should be the same as the side u had pasted the handmade sheet of piece one...i.e either length wise or width wise...i hope u have got this point..??)




Step 9: Now put piece one on piece two as shown in pic...

Step 10: Now the last step...paste the three sides of designer paper from piece on at back of piece two...and then paste some paper at the back of piece two so that u can hide visible cardboard piece...

Oh Neha how come I missed this post-- If I had seen it I wouldnt have spent ages searching for one yesterday on google! I like the idea of folding over the pattern paper- avoids the rough edges- my frame has the rough inner edge-- if its ok with you I will give a link to your tutorial in my post!

Dr Sonia S V said...

Neha I have edited my post and given a link to your tutorial.I am planning to make a few more-- I think I will use this neat step of the paper wrap.

Cheers

Hi, I loved this. I am going to try making it. I took some time to understand this. May be I am a lil slow : ) and also I think when I actually make it, I will refer to it. Will post on my blog when done. Thanks to you and Sonia for some inspiration to try my own photoframes : ))
