DIY Photo Frame using Cardboard

Isn't exciting to make our own photo frame!! Yeyy.. :) We're going to make one now. It's very simple to make along with kids also.


Supplies needed
  • Cardboard
  • Handmade paper/craft paper
  • Glue
  • Scissors/ Detail Knife
  • Marker
That's all. Aren't the supplies necessary so minimal.!!



Let's start with the process. First trace out heart shape or any shape you wish to make on a sheet of paper. Using scissors cut along the traced shape to use it as a template.


Using this template, trace inner and outer part of template on cardboard and cut along traced shape for front part. For back part of photo frame, trace outer part of template on cardboard and cut along traced path using sharp knife.


Using the same template, trace inner and outer part of template on handmade paper or craft paper and cut little above traced shape to stick on and along sides of cardboard cut for the front part as below.


Now, trace and cut an arc on cardboard. Stick this arc on back portion of photo frame as below for forming a gap to insert photo.


Stick front portion of photo frame we made on to arc that is attached to back portion of photo frame.
Now, cut two small rectangular pieces of cardboard to form stand for the frame as below.


Yuhoo.!! Beautiful photo frame is ready (:D)


Thank you for stopping by.
