Mitered Frame

by Betty Traciak

Use double-sided cardstock to create a framed panel.

Supplies

  • Double-sided scrapbook paper (Stampin' Up!® Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper used here)
  • Tape or adhesive runner
  • Scissors
  • Score board
  • Other supplies as needed to complete the project (SU products used here: Jar of Love stamp set, Whisper White Cardstock, Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry and Old Olive Classic Inks, Everyday Jars Framelits)

Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    Determine the outer dimension of the finished project and add one inch to each side.
    Example: For a 4” x 4” frame use a 6” x 6” piece of double sided paper.

    Score at 1/2” and 1” from each side.

  2. Step 2

    Cut away the four small squares in each corner, cutting just up to the scorelines.

  3. Step 3

    Fold on all scorelines and reopen so the paper is flat.

  4. Step 4

    Fold each corner on a 45 degree angle.

  5. Step 5

    Fold on scorelines and adhere.

  6. Step 6

    Decorate as desired.

I'm already confused on Direction#1. LOL!

It says add 1 inch to the outer dimension of the finished product. But she uses a 6x6 paper for a 4x4 finished piece. That's 2 inches on each side.

Adding 1" to the left side and 1" to the right side will give the final dimensions a 2" total difference. 😊 What a great idea!! Looking forward to trying this one. 😁
