Inked and Stamped Ikea Frame

After a trip to Ikea today I came back with 3 of these "Ram" frames - 4"x6" and a bargain at 3 for £1.59. I decided to make a template for the frame, which I would cut from white card and then ink/stamp it to cover the frame. I got busy in Inkscape and the result is a Microsoft Word template that you can print yourself and cut by hand - either on white card as I did, to decorate, or on patterned paper for a quick new look!

These frames vary by a millimetre or two, which I guess isn't suprising at 50p a time, so be sure to print the template on scrap paper first and cut it out then check that it fits correctly!

If you use the template, please let me see pics of what you've made! :)

The perfect excuse for a trip to Ikea. Many thanks for the gift of another great template for my Craft Robo.

I definitely won't produce anything nearly as WOW as your frame but, it's going to be great fun trying.

Thanks!

I just LOVE this frame template! I didn't have a frame to hand and so just made one out of chipboard. Stamping your frame wrappers was so much fun! So that I could enter it in a challenge, I decided to attached the finished frame to a card base and left the frame open at the top so that photos can be easily interchanged.
If anyone wants a peek, the photo is on
