We love to scroll through our memory lane. We can do it by going through the galleries and looking at all of those photographs when we were with our friends, our family, our pets, our college days or other happy moments. If the moments are really special, we get them printed and love to hang them in our rooms, or the meeting rooms, because they are close to our heart. Why don’t we try making our own photo frames to hang or place our important moments. So that we can cherish the moments in the photograph as well as enjoy the thoughts during and the time taken to make the frame.
How To Make Photo Frame
First of all cut two rectangular pieces of equal dimensions, keeping in mind the size of your photograph. Cut the stand of the frame. Mark the borders on one piece and cut the insides of the marking. Now cut a white drawing sheet a bit wider than the cardboard frame. Mark the inside marking on the sheet and cut it out. Now paste it on that part. Mark the sheet for the other carboard piece and paste it on it. Cover the stand in white sheet as well. Paste the back part to the front piece on three sides. Leaving the fourth ide open for placing the photograph. Now start quilling with thin strips of coloured paper. Stick the internal end to the subsequent ring. Now glue these rings to the fore of the frame. It will colour your memories beyond thought. For better understanding look up:

Secure it with the help of glue gun to the cardboard. Paste a plastic sheet at the back so that the photograph gets a nice finish. You can even use a coloured sheet to cover the cardboard pieces. Cut a U-shaped cavity from the back piece to place and take out the photograph. Cover the back piece with the same sheet. Once done cover the remaining part with plain white sheet. Make three frames of the like. Now cut leaves from green sheet and colourful flowers from coloured paper. Paste the flowers and leaves as well the heart shaped stickers to the frame. Now take two broad red ribbons and stick the frames on to the ribbons. We can easily hang the frames to a hook. For better understanding of making beautiful photo frames look up:
