Craft Idea – Paper Photo Frames

Posted by Erika on Mar 27, 2009 in Crafts , Family Crafts

Liven up your family photographs with handmade photo frames. These simply-crafted paper frames not only enhance the charm of a photo, but also add to the beauty of your home decor.

For this paper craft, you’ll need:

  • One 6″ X 6″ cardboard
  • Wallpaper/giftpaper scraps
  • Jumbo blossoms (Available in craft stores. Each packet contains 8 flowers of different shapes and colors, along with crystal brads.)
  • White craft glue
  • Scissors

Steps to follow:

  1. Cut four 4″X4″ sqaures out of each of your wallpaper/gift paper scraps. You should have 16 squares total.
  2. Make ½” diameter rolls out of each square.
  3. Glue the paper rolls on the cardboard. Eight vertically and eight horizontally, (as depicted in the image), leaving a small square gap in the middle.
  4. Measure the empty square, and cut your favorite photo according to your measurements.
  5. For the finishing touch, pick the jumbo blossom of your choice and affix it with a crystal brad in the lower corner of your frame.

Happy Crafting!
