I had ordered prints of many of my Fair Isle inspiration photos awhile back and wanted to put some of them in a collage frame. When I went shopping, I realized that collage frames are not for me. They’re too restrictive, and don’t have the cut-out size options I wanted. On one hand, I could take it to the extreme and design my own mat openings, but….let’s be realistic! So I came up with a better solution.
I bought a simple frame, and some black wrapping paper.
I took the cardboard that came with the frame and covered it with the paper. (I wrapped it like a gift at the edges, folding and taping facing flaps, then created a triangle at the corners of the open edges before folding and taping them in.)
And then I had to decide my “most inspirational” photos.
So many choices!
Of course nothing is set in stone so I can switch them out as needed, or even purchase and set up more frames.
The final products below. I love them both!
