Chiyogami Challenge - Project #1

As I mentioned yesterday I've finished the first project in my chiyogami challenge.  Can you spot it?

Yep, a little frame!

Want to make one too?  

You'll need:
  • 3" square of decorative paper
  • 2.5" square of heavy card (mine is maybe mat board)
  • glue, scissors, craft knife

1. Cut a square out of the centre of your card.
2. Cut an X out of your decorative paper (I put the frame on top & eyeballed it).
3. Clip the corners off the outside paper as well as the triangles created by the X and fold the onto the frame.
4. Glue everything down.

I've got mine propped up with other photo frames but I think these would be great scrapbook embellishments as well!


  1. Very Cute! I want to try one of these...I was just thinking we need a nice selection of frames. Maybe I'll do a series of them. Now I need to order some pictures to frame!

  2. Hi Laura,

    This is very pretty chiyogami photo frame.
