This tutorial will take you through making a treasure from scraps - A picture frame made from cardboard, covered with foil chocolate wrappers, with a multifunctional backing made from *you guessed it* cardboard.
Make one of these frames for a special person in your life, be it a friend, parent, teacher, co-worker, etc. Insert a photo of a memorable time spent together or message. Handmade gifts always mean so much more and a picture frame is such a lovely way to let someone know they are loved and cherished!
The awesome things about this project is that it really doesn't require you to spend any money. The materials are readily available; cardboard from a grocery box or packaging and if you're not a chocolate lover, there surely must be one nearby that can collect some foil wrappers for you. The rest of the required materials are basic tools that are worth investing in if you like to get crafty.
+ 2 square cardboard pieces (5”x5”)
+ Gold foil from chocolate wrappers
+ Cutting surface
+ Utility knife
+ Glue - white glue or other craft glue that dries transparent
+ Brush for glue
