PHOTO FRAME TUTORIAL


Neha from Steps towards crafting is sharing a photo frame tutorial.

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...
