Folded Paper Frame
by Beate Johns
Create a paper frame out of a square piece of patterned paper.
Line two opposite corners of your 4 1/4" square of patterned paper up with 3" scoring line on your Scor-Pal.
Score at 1" and 1 1/2".
Turn your paper 90 degrees, line the corners up again with the 3" score line and score the next corner at 1" and 1 1/2".
Repeat until each corner has score lines at 1" and 1 1/2".
Fold the corners in towards the center of your square on your inner score line.
Fold the corners out on the second score line.
Unfold your corners and place your image in the center of the paper frame. Add adhesive to the inner sides of your frames.
Foam dots were used here to give it a more 3D look.
The center will be a 3" square. The black layer here is a 2 7/8" square.
Remove the paper lining from the adhesive and adhere the sides of the frames to your image.
Fold the tip of each corner back in.
Add a dimensional to each corner.
Fold back over to finish your paper frame.
Use your frame on a card, box or scrapbook page.
Don't own a Scor-pal™ or want a different size frame?
You can use any size patterned paper square. Mark the center of your paper.
Fold the corners of the paper over so the corner tip hits the center of your paper. Then fold the corners back out.
