How to make Masking Tape Photo Frame
As I mentioned in my Daddy’s Mod Podge Photo Frame post, I’m making a series of photo frames to keep my girl’s memories alive so she doesn’t forget her family and beloved friends while we are away from them.
This time I revamped a simple metallic photo frame with this Scotch decorated masking tape and it turns out great!!!
What is the difference between masking tape and washi tape?
In simple words, washi tape is a high-quality masking tape made of rice paper. But more than that, washi tape is a material which is beautiful yet useful at the same time. You can tear it, stick it, reposition it, write on it… The low tack adhesive makes it extremely easy to use (and reuse). Nowadays, masking tape comes in gorgeous colors and patterns which makes it fun to work with but it’s still tougher than washi tape.
It was so enjoyed making this project. I found this cute masking tape at Target and it’s as fun as washi tape and it has lots of pretty patterns too.
One of my favorite patterns was this one I’m using and it was on sale too. Win-Win!
This time I made a photo frame for my sisters. Emma spent so little time with them and I don’t want her to forget them.
Photo Frame Supplies:
- Patterned scrapbook paper
- Masking tape (patterned)
- Old or ugly Photo frame.
- Hot glue.
- Cutter and scissors.
Masking Tape Photo Frame Tutorial
Firstly, clean the frame to remove dust or grease.
Then, start applying the masking tape. I tried my best to match the pattern on corners.
On the corners, I made a diagonal cut so the tapes wouldn’t overlap.
Masking is done.
The next step is gluing the ribbon with the hot glue gun to the sides of the frame.
I made a cute bow and placed it to one corner. This is totally optional.
Using the paper that comes with the frame as a reference to cut on the patterned paper.
Then cut a rectangle inside to create another frame. I displaced it a bit to make it a bit fun!
Finally, put back the glass and place the patterned paper facing the glass.
I chose the best pic I had of my sisters and placed it right after the patterned paper. Voila!
There you have it!!!
I putt it next to my hubby’s frame and the collection started!
The next one I plan to make is Emma’s grandparent’s photo frame!
