This is my very first picture tutorial,
I hope it makes sense.
For this frame you do not need glue, scissors or tape.
What you need to end up with a 6" square frame is,
1 sheet of 12" x 12" paper, long piece of ribbon, and 4 brads.
get the paper and fold in half and mark the centre of the fold only,
repeat this the other way as well so you get a small folded cross in the centre of the paper.
Can be made any size using a SQUARE of paper.
Then fold all 4 corners into that centre cross and bone fold the edge.
once all 4 corners are folded into the centre, turn it over so the solid side is facing up,
then take the 4 corners one at a time to the centre again and bone fold the edge.
The above photo shows how it looks now, similar to a square envelope.
then take the point of each of the 4 pieces (from the centre) and fold back so it meets the edge of the square and bone fold.
the picture below shows all 4 done.
where the corner meets the edge of the square, use a pokey tool to make a hole in each
of the 4 sections, (this is where the brad will go - but not yet)
put your chosen ribbon around all four pieces under the little flaps,
do not fasten of ribbon yet.
Then with ribbon under the little flaps put your brads through the two layers of paper,
these two layers are the little pointed corner and the piece under it,
NOT THE BACK OF THE FRAME.
Then you can tie the ribbon, and cut of any excess.
this is how it should look now.
Turn it over, and if you want your ribbon at the top when its standing make sure you
do the bottom two squares.
Fold two squares down to make trianles .
these make the stands which should be at the bottom of your frame for it to stand.
it will look like this when done and standing.
If it is not strong enough you can always add a little card to each of the supporting
triangles at the back. (the white bits in the above photo)
This is how it looks standing on its own supported by the two folded triangle supports at the back.
You can either put a card in here, as the ribbon can be undone and done up
whenever you want to, or you can use it as a picture frame.
Hope It has helped you.
