Mini Photo Frame Book

Last month I posted the instructions on how to make mini quote books. As an alternative use for these mini books I have turned one into a cute Mini Photo Frame. The instructions to make one is basically the same as my previous post on mini quote books, with a few differences towards the end, but I will give you all the instructions from start to finish for these Photo Frames.

Materials:
2 different styles of patterned paper
Cardstock
Chipboard Flower
Sheet of chipboard
Ribbon
Lace
Beads
Wire
Flower Punch

Instructions:

Making the cover for mini frames.
Step 1 - Cut out chipboard and fold on dotted lines.


Step 2 - Cut out outside of patterned paper and adhere to the outside of chipboard.


Step 3 - Cut about 15cm (5.90“) of cream ribbon (x 4 – two for each book, this is what ties the book together), stick it to the inside cover of the chipboard. (See image on Step 1).

Step 4 - Cut out the patterned paper and adhere it to the inside cover of each book.

Step 5 - Embellish cover of frame using patterned paper, lace and your flower punch.

Step 6 - For the inside of your frames cut out 2 x 61/2 x 61/2 cm from the cardstock, cut out the centre part of the square cardstock (this is where you will see the photo) leaving about a 1cm border. Adhere to the inside of your frames leaving the top open to slide your photo in.

Step 7 - Thread beads onto wire and thread wire through the centre of frames to embellish.

Just like the mini quote books, these Mini Photo Frames will make a beautiful Mother's Day present.
