Designer Tape Frame

 

What You'll Need:

  • 1 Wooden Picture Frame (8.5" x 11")
  • 1 Roll of ArtSkills Patterned Designer Tape
  • 1 Roll of ArtSkills Silver Detail Designer Tape
  • 1 Roll of ArtSkills Purple Glitter Detail Designer Tape
  • 1 Roll of ArtSkills Silver Holographic Designer Tape
  • 1 Fabric Patch (Click here for Fabric Instructions)
  • 1 Pack of ArtSkills Adhesive Gems
  • ArtSkills Poster Knife
  • Ruler
  • Cutting Mat

Instructions:

  1. Begin by cutting all of the pieces of ArtSkills designer tape needed to create your frame:
    • Cut two 11" strips of pattern designer tape
    • Cut two 13" strips of pattern designer tape
    • Cut two 7" strips of silver designer tape
    • Cut two 10 1/4" strips of silver designer tape
    • Cut two 6 1/2" strips of purple glitter designer tape
    • Cut two 9 1/2" strips of purple glitter designer tape
    • Cut one 3 1/2" square of silver holographic designer tape. *You may have to overlap the tape
      to make a 3 1/2" square*
  2. Lay your frame down flat with the front facing up.
  3. Using the two 11" designer tape strips, place them along the shorter ends of the frame. Then take the two 13" strips and place along the longer ends of the frame.
  4. When you have laid down these strips on the frame, you may experience excess overhang. Fold this over onto the back of the frame to secure the tape to the frame.
  5. To give a finished look to the frame, cut notches in the inner corners so that the tape lay flat against the frame and no adhesive is exposed.
  6. Now you can start to embellish the frame! Take the purple glitter detail tape and place it all along the inner outline of the frame.
  7. After you have applied the purple glitter detail tape, place the silver detail tape on the outer edge of the purple glitter detail tape.
  8. Now take the 3 1/2" square of silver holographic designer tape and place your fabric patch over top of the square. Adhere to the square with glue, ArtSkills Glue Dots or a piece of folded tape.
  9. Trim off the extra tape behind the patch so that a silver border remains.
  10. Decorate with gems and insert your favorite photo!
