Children’s Book = Picture Frame Mat

Posted by lori . No Comments


Creative Matting and Framing by Trice Boerens – Pg 48 (Once Upon a Time Mat)


Old Book

Mat & Frame


Scissors (I used deckle-edge scissors)

1.  Tear into pieces words and images from the book and arrange them on the mat.  I wanted the images to go completely around the inner edge of the mat; so I first glued down large pieces directly on the inner edge, then didn’t have to be so particular when I trimmed and glued down the pictures that I wanted from the book.

2.  Trim the pieces, apply adhesive to the backs and press in place, overlapping the edges.

3.  Wasn’t that easy?  You now have a beautiful, handcrafted picture frame mat.
