Hello Stampers!

DOUBLE PHOTO FRAME




 














INSTRUCTIONS


Cutting
1.      Cut two pieces of chipboard 5” x 5”
2.      Cut another two pieces of chipboard 5 ½” x 5 ½”
3.      Cut Designer Series paper for outside cover 6 ½” x 6 ½”
4.      Cut Designer Series paper for inside frames 5 ½” x 5 ½”
5.      Cut coordinating piece of cardstock 2” x 5 ½”



Assembling
1.      Place the 5 ½” x 5 ½” chipboard on top of the 6 ½” x 6 ½” DSP and mark corners, cutting off the points of the DSP.

2.      Place two sided tape all around the outside edge of the DSP. Remove paper from tape.
3.      Center the chipboard piece on the DSP and fold the DSP onto the chipboard.


4.      Place the 5” x 5” chipboard on the 5 ½” x 5 ½” DSP and trim corners.
5.      Place two sided tape all around the outside edge of the DSP. ALSO COMPLETELY COVER ONE SIDE OF THE CHIPBOARD WITH GLUE STICK OR LIQUID GLUE.

6.      Center the chipboard piece on the DSP and fold the DSP onto the chipboard to attach.
7.      Using the Big Shot and the 3 ½” circle die, cut a circle out of the center of the two 5” square chipboard pieces.


8.      Remove the blue plastic from one side of the window sheet. (Use your fingernail to scratch at the corner to get it started). Add two sided tape to all four sides. Center it over the circle cut in the 5” x 5” chipboard and attach, making sure it is straight.


9.      Take the piece of coordinating cardstock and fold it down the center lengthwise. Glue one side to the inside of the largest piece of chipboard, leaving the fold extended about ¼”. Place glue or tape on the other side of the cardstock and place the second piece of chipboard on top so that it lines up with the first piece. Keep the outside on top.


          Place two sided tape around 3 sides of the 5” x 5”chipboard (leave the TOP side open so that you can insert the photos
      Check the design on your DSP to make sure it is going the correct way. Peel the paper off of the two sided tape. Peel the blue plastic off of the window sheet. Attach to the inside of the larger piece of chipboard.

       Decorate the front and insides of the frame if desired.
       Insert 4” x 4” photos in the frames.
       Stamp Sentiment on Whisper White cardstock. Attach to matted contrasting colour and add pearls or brads. Attach to front of photo case.
