DIY Photo Frame with a Twist

By Cecilia Zertuche


  “Hello dear G45ers! I hope you had a wonderful season, and this New Year can be better!

This is my project, I took Annette Green’s Frame & Easel, and made a twist on it by adding a box to put inside all my clips. First I downloaded the instructions, HERE you can find it, then with that printed, it is so easy to follow the instructions. If you want to check the original tutorial with Charee, please click HERE.

In my interpretation I used gorgeous…


Graphic 45 Supply List: 

Nature Notebook Deluxe Collector’s Edition which includes sticker and chipboard sheets.

Graphic 45 black chipboard sheets.

Graphic 45 Tag, pocket & butterfly dies.

Graphic 45 Folder & sentiments dies.

Graphic 45 Rose bouquet collection, bon voyage & french blue.

Graphic 45 Antique metal door pull.

-Graphic 45 Matte pearl gems. (out of stock will be back Spring 2021)



-UHU glue.

-Aleene’s quick dry tacky glue.

-Ranger’s glossy accents.


The idea came out because it is a beautiful project, but also handy if we add a space to contain anything, a perfect gift!



The back is also decorated with this cute envelope with a tag, and if you’re planning to give it away, is the perfect space to write a personal message.


But this tag looks also amazing in the front! I added the word love that was cut out 4 times in black cardstock and one in metallique gold paper, stuck all together, to make my own chipboard word.
