Picture Frame Mat DIY Answered

i'm trying to frame a 6" square picture with a frame and mat. i cant find a nice frame or mat for a good price so I thought to glue a couple of sheets of cardstock together and cut out a custom mat shape. Do you guys think that will work?

I'm at a loss for the frame. I haven't thought of how to make the frame but i know i want something simple and modern looking. Any ideas/help?

I'm not entirely sure what you mean by a 'mat shape' but if it's what I think it is it should work... You might want to reinforce it with something. The look is entirely up to how you do it, paper's incredible like that because you can make it look like what ever you want.

Good luck! Keep us posted.
