box frame tutorial

1 -take an 8x8 piece of card or heavy weight paper stock ,I have used the manmade papers by first edition
score on all sides at 1 cm .. 2 and a half cm...5cm and 6and a half cm [pic 1]

2 cut out the corners as shown...cut a cross in the centre to the 2nd score line in and fold all the score lines well with a bone folder [ pic 2]

3- fold and glue the sides together making sure the corners are neat [pic 3]

4-fold the sides of the x you cut and glue as shown..I find it easier to do this from the front so you can get a good square shape on the frame [shown in pic 4]

5-cut the excess flaps of [shown in pic 5]

6 -cut a 15cm x15cm piece of matching paper/card [pic 6]

7-glue onto the back of the frame [pic 7]

8- decorate your frame...
You can use this as a stand alone frame  adding ribbon to hang it or mount it onto a card base
