Hey Scrappers! Today, I want show you a lovely technique on how to make a simple DIY photo frame by doing a little bit of drawing.
This is a great tip for those who are beginning scrapbooking.
I love this frame template and its rather handy for me, but you can also just draw your photo frame freehand. I just like the fact that I can easily match the size of my photo with this frame template.

Now that I've chosen the right size for my photo, we can cut out the frame using a craft knife. I'm just using a Stanley knife here just to get my frame punch out.

Then I'm just going to use my scissors just to round the edges. We don't want tight edges, we want a nice round edge for our DIY photo frame. So I'm just going to curve them off with my scissors.
Using a paper cutter, I'm going to make some nice clean edges to make the perfect photo frame. Again, not being too fussy about it, as long as it looks pretty even, I'm happy.
Now that we've got our photo frame, we can test out and see if it will sit perfectly on top of our photo. Looks like everything's perfect! Let's start with our drawings! I'm going to use some of my markers for this, but you can pretty much use what drawing tools you have.
