if you’ve been on our website lately you may have noticed these really cute little hand drawn frames that our graphic designers did. i love how they look, and then today i saw this post on design sponge and i was inspired! these hand drawn frames are a cute and cheap alternative to the real thing.

what you need: scissors, a glue stick, a black pen, paper and cardboard or a thicker type of paper (i used a manila folder).

1

i glued a piece of paper to the manila folder – this will be the frame – so it would be a little sturdier.  take another piece of paper and fold it in half, then fold in half again, as pictured on the right. this is what you’ll use to make the frame shape.

2

the frame can be any shape you want – i wanted it to be round, so i used a paper plate and traced the edges onto the folded paper, about an inch or so apart.

3

cut along the black lines and unfold the paper to reveal the frame shape.  tape it to the manila folder, or whatever you use, and cut around it so you’re left with your frame.

now for the fun part! put on some music and start doodling.

i used it to frame an image from our catalog and i think it looks really cute! i definitely want to experiment with this some more though – i think it would be really fun to do for christmas cards :)

very creative and beautiful works, i love it. we did many hand-made crafts in our primary school. As we growing up, we did this less and less due to much homeworks and jobs. I miss the days doing hand-made crafts in my primary school.
