WOW This is a first for me and I LOVE IT!! - #157

For as long as I can remember, I have been looking at Box Frames that people have made from just a piece of cardstock. I was in awe of how they did it and did not imagine that I would be able to make one. WELL I DID IT!!!! I finally got my head around exactly what I need to do, I did have to watch a few videos before I fully understood how they work, but I hope I have explained it clearly on the video so you can make them too.

Little One Soft Sky Box Frame

I think these would make really special Thank You gifts for people, possibly not with the image I have used here, but you get the idea. I can see all sorts of stamp sets working, and remember you can make rectangles as well as squares. All you need to remember is that your card needs to be 5" larger than the internal measurement of your frame (being 10 x 1/2", which is the depth of the frame). In this case the internal measurement is 3-1/4", so the card is 8-1/4 x 8-1/4". Oh now the metric version, that is going to get my brain working.

Let's think, the internal measurement is 8cm. I could give you the converted measurements from imperial to metric, but that just gets into the realms of silly measurements, so let's just make this more straightforward. The 'key' measurement, in addition to the internal size, is how deep your frame is, so you could either go down to 1cm, or up to 1.5cm. I think I would go down to 1cm, so your card would be 10 x 1cm larger, or 10cm; this gives you a base of 18cm. You would then score every 1cm, rather than every 1/2". Phew, done it!

Oh, and can I just say, my husband was amazed that these were made from card, he was convinced they were 'real' frames. Guess what, they are REAL frames!!
