The frame options will depend on the size of the photo you choose. I have a standard photo of 15 × 10cm.
Let's start from the back of the frame. Cut a rectangle of 22 × 17 cm in size from cardboard.
Then we take the wallpaper and glue one side so that there is a margin for the second.
That's what we get.
Now we need to make a stand. A piece of cardboard is transformed into a rectangle of 20 × 4 cm in size and glued with wallpaper on all sides. The stand is ready.
It remains to stick it to the back of the frame. Cut a rectangle of 20 × 15 cm from the wallpaper and draw it on the white side of the diagonal. Next, make an incision in the center of 4 cm long.
We insert a stand into it and coat it with glue all together, then carefully glue it together.
The back is completely ready. Put it under the press.
Getting to the facade of the frame. We cut out the rectangle, taking as the basis the dimensions indicated in the photo, after which we get rid of the shaded area.
From the wallpaper we cut a rectangle 24 × 21 cm in size, apply the front part to it so that the indent from all sides is the same, carefully draw the center and diagonals.
We cut the shaded part, and cut its diagonals to the very corners.
Before you complete the manufacture of the frame, you must carefully glue the inner corners with glue.
Now you can glue all sides of the frame. The front end is ready.
Decor photo frame.
Depending on how you want to decorate the frame, tear out the pages of the magazine.
All pages are doubled in half.
Then cut along the bend line.
Each strip is again folded into a quarter (.
We twist them into tight shanks, after which we fix the end with tape so that they do not unwind.
In the process, you can adjust the height of the handlebars. It all depends on how wide the strips are.
Finished strips can also be decorated in the form of a leaf.
After all the elements are made, glue them to the front of the frame with any pattern that comes to mind. Then it remains only to glue the facade of our frame to its rear. Glue only 2 parallel sides with longer lengths. This condition must be met, otherwise inserting a photo will be problematic. (Marked hatching).
In conclusion, we put the frame under the press, and the next day we admire the result of our labors.
