Step 1:

Make 0.5cm strips as shown in the image. Keeping the ends of the strips joined will help to weave comfortably and easily.

Step 2:

Step 3: Corner Weave:

Weave as shown in the image.

Step 4:

Weave the extension in the same way as previous step.

Step 5:

Glue the folded edges at the back.

Step 6:

Now weave your second color as shown in the picture. Fold and glue the excess at the back. Gluing helps the weave to stay in its place.

Step 7: Output of Basic Photo Frame:

Step 8: Making Photo Frame Into Fridge Magnet:

To make this into fridge magnet, I have used magnetic photo cover and black sheet.

Step 9: Black Sheet Backing:

Make strips of black sheet and paste it to the backside of the photo-frame. This conceals the numerous paper joints at the back and also gives a backing support to the frame.

Step 10: Final Product:

Glue the magnetic photo cover onto the black backing. Leave it to dry well and insert your favorite photo and place it onto your fridge.

TIPS:

1.Any paper including magazine sheets can be used to replicate this.

2.Magnetic photo-cover can be replaced with magnetic strips.

3. Preferably use metal ruler to cut your sheets.

4. Use cutting board or vitrified tile or glass to avoid scratches / cut on your work top.
