Framing Made Easy
Get professional-quality results in a few easy steps.
Framing a Series of PhotosWhen a vacation was chock-full of Kodak moments, why not combine a few snapshots into one frame? To accommodate any number, size, or arrangement of photos, your best bet is to customize a piece of mat board yourself. No tape or glue is involved―just a few photo corners―so the images can be easily replaced with your new favorites.
What You Need
- Mat board, cut to size
- Cork-backed metal ruler
- Self-adhesive photo corners
- Self-adhesive spacers
- Utility knife
How to Frame ItStep 1: For the look shown here, use a cork-backed ruler (to avoid scratches) and position four four-by-six-inch photos faceup 3 1/2 inches from the outside of a 16-by-20-inch mat board.
Step 2: Apply self-adhesive photo corners. Leave each corner a sliver of breathing room so that after you slide in the photos, they won’t buckle over time.
Step 3: Cut a spacer the length of one side of the glass with a utility knife. Attach the spacer flush to the glass edge. (It will disappear under the frame.) Repeat for the remaining sides.
Step 4: Flip the glass over so the spacers provide a buffer between the photo’s glossy finish and the glass, then pop the whole shebang into a frame.
