We are just tickled to share our new tutorial with you! This is such a simple and inexpensive way to turn pictures into a true work of art. It's called a Pleated Picture and we want to show you step by step how to make one! The possibilities are endless when it comes to a pleated picture. I have one in my home and I use it to display pictures, ticket stubs, and other paper memorabilia from a favorite vacation. And it's so easy to switch it out every now and then. Did someone have a baby and send you a baby announcement? Put the baby announcement and other pictures into a pleated picture and give it to them as a gift. Did you get a wedding announcement? This is a very fun way to display the happy couple's picture and announcement that will be cherished for years to come. Now lets get started!
First of all, find the perfect frame. You can go out and buy a brand new one, or try the frugal route and find one around your home or thrift store. Keep an open mind and remember that some of the ugliest frames just need a little paint and tlc to reveal their true beauty!
The number of strips you will need is determined by how tall your cardstock base is. My base was 10” tall, so I cut out 10 strips. If your base is 12” tall, you will need 12 strips. Pretty simple.
