How to make an 3d frame

The paper is from G45 ABC Primer collection
Size of the frame is 8x6 and inside there is place for a 6x4 photo
The images was fuzzy cut out of the paper collection and cowered with Claudine Hellmuth multi matte medium. Then i edged the papers with a black marker and glued it to the frame.
Some of the images where popped up with 3d dots. In the right corner i have used an clock that i don`t use any more and placed a flower from G45 over. The school day sign is placed behind the clock paper strip. I used 3 layers paper 1/4 inch and glued them together so the sign can stay over the frame

This frame was created the same way that i show in how to make a mini album from start to finish part 5b where i show how to make the angles.

How to :
Cut 2 strips of paper at 8 x 2 1/2 and 2 strips at 6 x 2 1/2
One background paper at 8 x 6

if you want an other size just change the measurements

Fold as you see on the picture

Cut the angles the same way that i show in the video on how to make a mini album from start to finish - part 5b

Fold out it shall now look like this

Snip of the ends like show bellow

fold the paper to create the 3d effect and use glue on the 1/2 inch sides

Now it is ready to glue on your background paper

The most easy way to glue it down is to lay all 4 strips together as a frame up side down and glue a triangular paper on the inside in the corners, and then glue it all to the background paper.

Now the frame is ready to be decorated

If you want the frame to stand up like this cut a paper at 6 x 12 and score at 2 and 10.
Fold in the score marks and glue the frame in the middle of the paper.

Make an angle on both sides about 1/2 inch from the outside and into the bottom of the frame

Wish you all a great day and thanks for visit my blog .
