It's a Wrap!

String is all it takes to make a clever frame for your snapshots. Use a symmetrical style or wrap randomly. Either way, the final result puts your favorite photos front and center.

-For a clever way to display photos, try this. You know, there's nothing silly about the string project that lets you change every photos whenever you want. And they look like a lot of work, but hey, if you can wrap string, you can make this project. Now, you start by covering the frame insert with a textural piece of cloth and I'm using some burlap. You could also use linen, or whatever you would like. And what you're gonna do is you're going to put a line of hot glue along 1 edge here. Just like this. And then you'll just simply fold over your fabric, and press down. Alright. Now, you wanna go to the opposite edge and then pull it really tight. This is very key. You need to make sure you've got it really tight, fold that down and take your glue gun again. And you're just gonna do another line at the top, and then we'll go to your sides and do the same thing. Now, you'll need to put some glue right up here on the burlap because you'll need that when you create a simple [unk] on the corner. And it is good to have about an inch of overlap because the burlap will tend to unravel, and so you wanna make sure you have enough fabric. Now, I've started this one over here, and I anchored it down with a little dab of glue to get it started on the end of the string. And then, all you're going to do is wrap. You kinda wanna pull it kind of tight to stay in place, and you'll want to watch some of the spacing just to make sure that you're being consistent. Or you know, actually if you want, you could just do a random effect too and that can be kinda cool. So once you get to the end, you'll need to get hot glue gun out again before you cut, get that secure like that, cut your string. Then, you're just gonna pop the whole thing right into your frame like this. Now, you're ready to slip your photos into the string, and you're a wrap star.
