DIY Family Portrait in Scroll Laser Cut Wood Frame

You may have seen these scroll unfinished laser cut wood frames before and said to yourself "I really like these frames but what would I do with them?"... Well today we will show you how to make this simple, but stunning family portrait frame using our fun 8.5" x 11" scroll laser cut frame.

We painted it blue to match the beautiful flowers in the scrapbook paper we're going to be using to decorate the frame.

You will also need a 8" X 11" stretched canvas.

And finally the element that makes this frame so stunning is the "Secret Garden" paper collection by BoBunny. Simply trim the paper to fit your canvas, and make sure to include the sides in your measurements since you'll wrap the paper around the canvas. Adhere the paper to the canvas using Mod Podge as your glue. Here's a video tutorial on how to apply Mod Podge - CLICK HERE.

The next step will be to glue your picture on cardstock (color of your choice) that you will have cut a little larger than your picture. This will create a mat around your picture. Then glue your matted picture to the canvas.

The final step is to attach the canvas to the scroll frame. We used E6000 glue, but you can use something else if you prefer. Just make sure it's a glue that bonds really well.
