DIY Recycled Photo Frame

May 06, 2015

Happy Mid Week! 
Just a few more days to the weekend, so hang in there. :)

Today for Inspiration Time over at The Cutting Cafe blog, we are to recycle and reuse! What a fun idea Regina had.

So I got a cereal box that I was about to throw out and made a photo frame!

Yups, I handmade this for my hubby. Since he loves cycling, I showcased his awesome bike here and made him his very own "show off" display :)

I used the Bicycle Background set & Cameras Everywhere Background Printable set -- which I printed on some patterned paper. Then I embellished it with a simple sentiment from Heidi Swapp, a die cut piece and some enamel dots.

So, let me show you my quick process on how I made this frame.

First up, get a cereal box and cut out these 3 pieces:
+ The frame
+ The backing piece
+ The support piece

Next, get some patterned paper and begin to WRAP! :)
As you can see, it doesn't need to be perfect.

Finally, just piece everything together and you are done!

For the support piece, I added 2 buttons and some twine to it to "limit" the opening so that it will be able to stand upright.

  3. Love this!! And what a great idea of adding buttons to the stand! I have tried something like this before and it wasn't sturdy enough to stay up-I will add the twine next time-AWESOME!!
