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. Fold your own paper frame with this free SVG file.
- 1 – 12×12 sheet of cardstock
- personal cutting machine (I used a Cricut Maker)
- optional adhesive
- SVG file
Open the file in Design Space, ungroup. Select all and then center the two layers vertically and horizontally. Then attach, change the red box to score, and then cut.
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.
