This simple and clear frame is all made with old cloth and plastics. It is very easy to make and you can DIY whatever styles you like.
I’ve always wished I could have a lightweight and easy to use frame of single piece backing. And I couldn’t find any frames fit for my requirement. Therefore, I decide to use the waste materials to make my own frame. Hope you will like it :)
Step 1: STEP ONE
- Old cloth
- Old glass/ Old plastic plate
- File edge or bracket
Step 2: STEP TWO
You have to tailor the backing cloth to certain size, which is as similar as the selected glass/plastic. However the tailored size is based on cloth’s flexibility and there must be some differences between different cloths.
Step 3: STEP THREE
Choosing PU leather and Acrylic as my materials, I tailor the backing cloth exactly as same as the front size and also using two-sided tape to stick sides of single piece leather to sides of Acrylic board.
Step 4: STEP FOUR
Cutting the file edge to match the length of sticked sides. And using edge as frame to fix Acrylic and PU leather.
Step 5: FINISH
Finished! I find it could be more useful than just a photo frame, I also can insert a message or memo or anything flat into this frame. And when I travelled, I still can bring it because of the lightweight. I really love it and hope you will like it too.
