Birds of a Feather Frame

Feature your favorite photos in a customized frame! Embellishing a photo frame with crafty touches allows you to create a one-of-a-kind keepsake.


1. Start by covering a photo frame with cardstock. You can find customizable frames at most craft stores.

2. Add a branch cut from cardstock – allowing the shape to trail off the edge of the frame.

3. Cut a frame out of patterned paper to fit around the photo cut-out space.

4. Add clouds punched from patterned paper – adhering some with foam adhesive for dimension.

5. Print a sentiment or title onto cardstock, then punch with scalloped squeeze punch – adhere to lower corner of frame.
