You can make this for yourself or you can make it as a present.
It cost me just over £6 to make.
Dont forget to vote for me in the valentines competition. Thanks.
Date Made: Feb 2013
Approx Cost: £6
Approx Time: 2 hours
Step 1: Things You Need
2. Double sided sticky foam pads - I used 5mmx5mmx2mm (ebay £1.44 for 400no)
4. A ruler for getting straight cuts (if using a knife)
6. A piece of cardboard
7. Pritstick or Spray glue
Step 2: Measure Your Frame
250mm x 250mm = Frame Outside
230mm x 230mm = Background Picture (size of usual picture the frame takes)
215mm x 215mm = Mid Stepped Cut Pictures (to fit inside the void former box)
120mm x 120mm = Mat Board opening (the size of the hole in the frame border)
You need to measure these so that your prints and templates are all the right size.
Step 3: Get A Picure Of Your Map
Cut and paste this image in to a program that you are familiar with (word, paint, whatever)
In this program, scale the picture to the size of your frame background. (Make sure you keep the correct ascpect ratio).
It doesnt matter if it doesnt fill the whole page as you wont see the outside 50mm of it.
Print out 6 copies, all the same scale/size. (I found it easier to get it in to pdf format first so that I could control the print size easily)
Alternatively you could do this by photocopying a map, but make sure all 6 copies are the same.
