Wallet Sized Grade Frames!

Graduation is JUST around the corner!  
These Wallet Sized Grade Frames are perfect for all those graduation parties.  It is a quick and easy decoration that looks great against your table backdrops, across walls, table fronts, entryways, and more!  Such a great way to show off your grad!  Each frame is approximately 3-1/4" x 4-1/4" and holds a standard wallet sized photo (2-1/2" x 3-1/2").  The file comes with the two photo frames and an insert (in case you want to mat smaller images, or if you are missing a photo you can hand write a message!) and is compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats.  The frames have a fold over tab so twine/ribbon can easily be attached.  Looks for all SEVEN files to complete the set!


Here is the tutorial:
1. Cut out the frames in each file.  NOTE: You will not need the insert piece unless you are matting a smaller photo or handwriting a message. Place a small strip of adhesive across the twine/ribbon tab as shown.  I am using 1/8" double sided adhesive tape.
2. The back side of your frame will have adhesive down the side tab. Insert and center your photo using the tab cut to hold the bottom of the photo.
3. Fold over your side tab and adhere to the frame.  Add another piece of adhesive on the tab front.
4. Close the frame, securing your adhesive to the frame back.  NOTE: This tab was placed in the file so that adhesive would not interfere with the image.
5. Flip your frame over and insert your twine/ribbon toward the score line.
6. Then expose your adhesive and press down firmly.  If you are using a thin ribbon or twine, you can still slide the frame so that you can position easily.
7-8. Continue building and attaching frames!
9. The photos will easily lift through the front so that they can be removed.
10. The tab slot shows through the back of the frame so that you can easily tuck images back in even when the frames are complete.

 Tips for cutting:  Use a smooth cardstock and slow your machine down.  I am using a 60# weight cardstock and a speed of 4.

Set of 2 Gift Boxes

This Gift Box can be used as shown as a set of two or singular.  The file comes with the box base, the box lid, two inside mats (for top and bottom inside coverage), and the lid mats (seven in total).  You need to cut two of the total file in order get the project shown.  Each box is approximately 6" x 2-3/4" x 1-1/2" and the file is compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats.  The cuts in the file are layered and separated by color.  Be sure to ungroup and move the mats before cutting.


Here is the tutorial:
1. Cut out your pieces.  Fold the lid and base box on its score lines.  The pieces all go together the same, so in this tutorial we are showing just the lid.  You will need to follow the tutorial for all pieces.  Remember to cut two total files if you want the circle set of boxes. Add adhesive to the two back tabs, the two triangle tabs, and the two front tabs as shown.  Flip the piece over and then add adhesive to the three tabs on each side, they all fold in.  Place adhesive on the back of the coordinating inside mat.
2. Adhere the triangle tabs to the box, lining up the edges.  Adhere the two tabs to the inside tabs.
3. Adhere the remaining two tabs to the inside tab area.
4. Fold the inside tab down and adhere, adhere the smallest tab to the bottom of the box.
5. Adhere the inside mat in place to hide the tabs.
6. Repeat for the box bottom.  Your lid/bottom will look like this now.
7. Adhere the mats in place.
8. Cut the remaining box and embellish and fill as desired!
