Diploma in Hand craft

Preserve graduation memories with a handmade photo frame. These are so easy, you can make frames for the whole class of graduates!

  • 1.

    Graduation is an exciting time of change. To remember the day, make a photo frame for yourself and others to give as gifts.

  • 2.

    Using Crayola® Scissors, cut a piece of cardboard larger than your graduation photo.

  • 3.

    With Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils, trace around the frame on construction paper. Lay the paper on a bumpy surface such as sandpaper or bricks. Rub with Crayola Twistables to create a textured effect on the paper.

  • 4.

    For a layered effect, draw another paper frame slightly narrower than the first frame. Use a contrasting color of Twistables or a different textured surface to create a double-matted look.

  • 5.

    Attach the papers to the cardboard with a Crayola Glue Stick. Glue the photo in the center.

  • 6.

    On separate paper, draw and color graduation symbols such as a mortarboard or diploma. Write the year of graduation. Cut decorations out and glue them to the edge of the frame. Air-dry the glue before wrapping up your gifts for the graduates.
