Are you ready for a Thursday tutorial?

Hi everyone!

It's Sam, hope you'll enjoy the tutorial I've created!
I love to alter photo frames, which got me to thinking about how I could make my own frame using Bo Bunny's fabulous Double Dot cardstock.

So without further ado, May I present:

"Love you 2 the moon and back " frame

To create this project, you will need: 2 - Double dot cardstock 12"x12"

1 Blast Off Combo Stickers

1 Blast Off Dimensional Stickers

1 Crush 12" Chipboard

1 Blast Off Jewels

Bo Bunny Bling

Other supplies: white pen, Fiskars apron lace punch, dark brown chalk ink,

plain chipboard 5.4" x 5.4"

Step 1: Take DD cardstock no 1 and cut a 5.5" x 11" strip and a 5.5" x 6" strip. the other piece of Double dot is for matting, if required

Step 2: Cut a 5.4" x 5.4" piece of chipboard. Next fold the 5.5" x 11" strip in half so you have a square. On the smaller piece of double dot, fold back 0.5" so you have a 5.5" square. In the centre of this square, cut out and remove a 4.5" x 4.5" square.

Step 3: Open the folded piece of double dot. Stick the 0.5" strip onto the left hand edge of the 11" piece. You now have a piece of cardstock that measures 5.5" x 16.5"

Step 4: Stick the chipboard square in the middle square of your long strip of card.

Step 5: Now take your template( can be found at the end of this post) and place it in the centre of your middle square, about a quarter of an inch from the bottom. Trace around it. Then cut along the solid lines and fold along the dotted lines.

Step 6: Once you are sure you have cut through and are able to fold the "stand" out. Fold the square on your right over and adhere to the chipboard.

Step 7: Now stick your photo in place. Mine measured about 4.75" x 4.75"

Step 8: You now take the square to your right, fold it over and stick it down. Your photo is now framed!

Step 9: You've now reached the really fun part of the project :0) Get stuck into your Bo Bunny Blast Off goodness and scrap your frame as you wish!

Step 10: When you have finished this turn your frame over to see the cuts and folds from steps 5 and 6.

Step 11: Take the large cut section and fold it back to your left

Step 12: Take the smaller cut piece and fold it down towards you. This is the piece that will hold the stand firm so that the frame does not fall over.

Lastly, stand the frame up and hey presto, your frame is complete!

This is just a view from the side:
Hope this template will be useful :0)
