Do It Yourself Picture Frame Greeting Card

Do It Yourself Picture Frame Greeting Card

It was a usual day. I came from a store to buy my craft supplies from Deco Art. I have more stickers, sticky notes and washi tapes to add on my collection. It was too hot so I chose to go inside Fairview Center Mall and buy a soda. I remember I used to go here when I was in high school (of couse, after school hours). I passed by Tronix which I believe students prefer if they want to print photos. Well, of course, I also used to for photo printing services. Had a good idea then of printing some of me and my boyfriend’s photos which are stored on my phone. Also, in an instant, I thought of doing a DIY gift for him. It’s our 63rd monthsary the next day. Cheesy ba? We still celebrate monthsaries. ❤

When we were in college, I used to give him cards and scrapbooks containing our photos. He loves it whenever I gave him one. When we started working, I stopped doing and giving him these gifts like these. Maybe, because of lack of time. [excuses…]

Do It Yourself Picture Frame Greeting Card

Lay the photo on a paper and glue it.

*this photo is a commissioned artwork of Rob Cham, a Filipino illustrator and comic artist. It’s a caricature of my boyfriend who happens to be the drummer of Persephone*

Trace the photo on a designer paper to come up with the frame. I used a designer paper with a G-Clef design. You can use any design you want. For my project, I used musical notes because my boyfriend is a musician.

Glue or paste the photo on a bigger blank canvass. Put the frame on top of it then trace the outer frame.

I just bought a new sticky notes with musical note designs. I thought of cutting those. You may choose other designs you want.

I wrote my greeting here and attached this at the back of the card.

    Love this, what a inexpensive way to make frames for prints or photos! Your calligraphy is gorgeous by the way, my Nan is very good at this too and I want to learn. This is a super cute way to give someone a card and it’s really personal too which I love! You’ve given me a great idea for Father’s Day this year!

    Hi Aika,

    I love handmade gifts! Your frame looks so easy to make but unfortunately I am not good with calligraphy. So I just have to find another way to write on the card. I am sure that your boyfriend loved the card! Bookmarking this DIY for future use. Thank you!

    We started a scrapbook with my girlfriend and I’m becoming more creative with my hands now. I think your DIY greeting card is awesome, I really like it. I’ll certainly use your tips to create one for my girlfriend as well for a gift. And I guess it will end up in the scrapbook Haha. Thank you for the idea !
