DIY photo frame

A photo frame with your own hands can be not only an excellent birthday gift and other holiday gift, but also an original accessory for decorating an apartment or a car. The most important thing is to make it possible even for the smallest child, and the inside photo of the baby will not leave anyone indifferent.

When one of your family members has a memorable date, invite the child to make a birthday gift by hands. Explain that such a gift will be twice as expensive for the birthday man, as he will appreciate not only the craft itself, but also the effort expended on its production.

The simplest option for a small child is paper crafts. Paper is easy to manipulate, from it you can create various bright images. Working with paper develops the hands and fingers of the baby, which is very useful to him later in life.

In orderin order to make a photo frame easily and quickly, you need to prepare in advance:

  • bulk dense cardboard (from a large packaging box);
  • bright colors (for example, acrylic);
  • wide brush;
  • simple pencil;
  • glue or tape;
  • scissors.

Also Prepare a couple of pictures of your baby in advance.

Getting Started.

On the cardboard we draw the contours of the future frame - let the child do it himself. Contours should not be smooth or neat, light asymmetry will only give charm to the future craft. The contours of the lips, stars, hearts, clouds are easily given to the children. The frame made in the form of contours for phrases that are used in comics looks unusual.

Carefully cut the resulting figure. Thick cardboard is cut quite difficult, so you will need to help the baby. Inside the figurine we cut a big hole for the photo.

On the reverse side we fix Scotch tape or glue an interesting photo of a child. The frame is ready!

If you want to make a frame-suspension in the car, on the wrong side of the cardboard blank also color in bright color, and two photos folded together inside out of the cardboard, splitting it apart with a stationery knife, and then taped well. This kind of frame looks very advantageous, especially if there are two children in a family - you can fix a photo of each of them from different sides.

With an older child, you can try to make a frame using self-adhesive colored paper.

For this, the paper is cut out along the contour of the frame with a small margin at the edges. After it is pasted on the frame, the edges are folded into the inside of the hole and on the back side of the frame. The photo is fixed with glue or tape. This frame looks more "professional."

If desired, the child can decorate the frame with colored patterns, patterns or stickers.Let him create his own, unique style!
