If you're a fan of Anime or video games, then you may have collected a few wallscrolls of your favorite shows or games. This guide will show you how frame your favorite wallscrolls to give your beloved wall decorations a unique and more sophisticated look.
Step 1: Select a wallscroll.
The wallscroll I've chosen for this guide is made of very thin fabric, which makes it a poor wallscroll. Framing it will greatly improve it's look.
Step 2: Purchase a frame.
Purchase a 24 x 36 inch poster frame. It should have a glass or clear plastic covering designed to protect the poster. Most likely it will be a clear plastic covering, but throughout the guide I will refer to it simply as the glass. You can get these at fairly inexpensive prices at several chain retail stores. Mine cost me $30.
Step 3: Dismantle the wallscroll.
Remove the top and bottom bars from your wallscroll. DO NOT CUT YOUR WALLSCROLL. Instead you should be able to remove the plastic cap at one end of each bar and slide the wallscroll out. You'll notice that hidden in the bar is a strip of cardboard that prevents the fabric from fraying even when the wallscroll is not attached to the bars. The reason you should not cut your wallscroll is to keep it from fraying at the ends. Plus, if you save the bars you can reconstruct your wallscroll if you don't like the way it looks in the frame.
Step 4: Lay the wallscroll flat on the floor.
Lay the dismantled wallscroll flat on the floor with the image facing the floor. Even with a wallscroll made of thicker material, you should still be able to see the image through the back in a well lit room. This will help with the framing process.
