How to Make Your Own Paper Picture Frames

The demand for paper picture frames has increased as creating scrapbooks became more and more popular. The idea of placing your picture in a frame with decorations complementary to the theme of the photo is both new and exciting. You can add embellishments and make the frame as personalized as the picture. Not only that, paper frames are also cheaper than their metal or wood counterparts. They also are durable in their own right since they don't chip or rust like the wood or metal version.

Another great thing about frames made of paper is that they're safe for babies to play with

Of course, it's better if babies don't play with frames, but should they be able to grab hold of one, there's no risk of them poking their eyes or cutting themselves. Paper frames are also recyclable so you know you're helping the environment in your own small way.

Paper frames come with their own drawbacks, though - they're neither water nor fire proof

You can't put your frames near the stove or the fireplace, or next to flower vases or sweating glasses of water. Cleaning should also be done with care. You can't just dump them in a tub of water for a scrub; you should use damp or dry cloth to wipe dust off your frames.

Paper picture frames can be purchased in many home improvement stores or paper shops. You can also get great finds in Amazon, Kmart, Adorama, and DTY Direct.

However, if you want to take a crack at making your own frame using paper, all you need is corrugated paper, glue, a pencil, a ruler, a pair of scissors, and your choice of decorations. First thing you need to do is measure the picture you'll be placing in the frame and checking if it's landscape or portrait. You don't want to place a landscape photo in a portrait frame.

Take two pieces of corrugated paper and determine how big your frame is going to be and cut both pieces in equal sizes. Pick which piece will be the front part of the frame and take it for measurement. Take the picture you'll be using and use it to measure the opening of your frame. Make sure the opening is about half an inch smaller on each side compared to the picture since you don't want your photo to pop out of the frame.

When you've cut the opening, you can then glue the two piece of paper together; making sure the corrugated part is on the outside. Note that you only need to glue three sides of the paper since the last side will be used to get the picture in. When this is done, you can now get creative with how you decorate the frame. Go with stickers, tiny objects, or printed captions - it's up to you.

As for how you will display your DIY paper picture frames, you have two choices. You can attach a small hook at the back of your frame and hang it on your wall, or stick a thick triangle shaped paper at the back to serve as a stand.
