Folding a paper frame using Cricut Design Space

Need a frame? They are so easy to make with cardstock. Using a personal cutting machine makes it that much easier. They are very sturdy. Thick enough to also be used as a shadow box. The frames were really easy to make and rather addictive. 


  • 1 - 12x12 sheet of cardstock
  • personal cutting machine (I used a Cricut Maker)
  • SVG file 
  • optional adhesive

Special thanks to Cricut for providing the Maker making this project possible.

Begin by cutting out the SVG file linked above.

This is what the SVG file looks like. The black outline cuts and the red lines need to be set to score. 

The video below will show you how to set up the file in Cricut Design Space as well as how to fold it after cutting.

I love these frames and the pretty card stock you've used. Wouldn't they be cute mounted onto the fridge with some magnetic tape?
