Total Time: 30 minutes
- magnetic strip
- scrapbook paper
- hot glue
- X-acto knife
- Ziploc bag
- Using a ruler, determine the picture frame size you would like and draw it on the cardboard. Using an X-acto knife trace your outline. *Optional: I originally was going to make this picture frame with a backing to stand on a desk, but I decided I wanted this frame to be a magnet instead.
- I cut assorted sizes of paper squares and rolled them into tubes with my pen then secured with tape. Repeat until you have enough to cover your frame.
- Secure paper tubes with hot glue gun. Trim excess.
- To hide the cardboard trim, I used sticker ribbon.
- For the picture frame window, I cut a square piece from a Ziploc bag. Use hot glue and secure plastic window to the frame.
- As a cute accent to the frame, I added hearts. It is very easy, cut a strip of paper and fold in half. Roll both sides to form your heart. Secure hearts down with hot glue.
- Using another piece of a Ziploc bag, cut out a square piece. Tape along the edge and cut out a V shape, so you can easily switch out the photo.
- Lastly, cut magnetic strips to secure to the back edges of the picture frame.
