Using Your Frames
After printing your chosen collection of frames, there are a few different ways you can use them.
- Cut out the center of the frame you want to use with a sharp craft knife, and then center your photo or other item in the opening before attaching to your scrapbook page.
- Adhere your photo on top of the frame, making sure that the edges are pressed down well to prevent any damage to the image.
- Add a poem, song lyric, or quote to the empty space in the frame, either by typing it in before printing (using your favorite image software) or handwriting it on after printing.
- Frame other items such as ticket stubs, business cards, or even a baby's sock.
Add Flair With Frames
Scrapbooking frames add a lovely finishing touch to your pages, and they can be further embellished with glitter, stick-on gems, or even colored pencils. If the frame's opening is too large, mat the photo or other item being framed with a piece of plain, colored paper first to fit inside the center of the frame.
