Paper frames tutorial

IMG_7424

Hi everyone! Today I’m showing you how to make paper frames in 3 ways.

In order to make the frames you only need some good quality paper and double-sided tape or glue. It doesn’t matter what size paper you use as long as you follow the scoring instructions. The frames can be made any size and they’re super fun to make. Could be a cute gift as well or maybe a 1st wedding anniversary gift (1st year theme is paper).

I also have a video tutorial on my YouTube channel here: https://bit.ly/2SvoLYS

I. Basic frame

Take your paper and score at: 3/8″, 3/4″, 1 1/8″ and 1 1/2″

Trim away the corners (the small squares formed by the intersection of the scored lines)

On 2 sides (if you’re making a rectangular frame I do recommend choosing the shorter ones) mark on the 3rd score line 3/8″, trace a trapezoid shape and trim using the scissors.

 

II. Deep border frame

Take your paper and score at: 3/4″, 1 1/8″, 1 7/8″ and 2 1/4″

Trim away the corners (the small squares formed by the intersection of the scored lines)

On 2 sides (if you’re making a rectangular frame I do recommend choosing the shorter ones) mark on the 3rd score line 3/4″, trace a trapezoid shape and trim using the scissors.

 

 

*** The templates aren’t at actual size, they’re just a guide to help you create your own frames, showing you exactly how to score and cut. Please check the video tutorial as well to see the process step by step.
