How to make the strut for a paper picture frame
Having made the picture frame you’ll need to make a strut for it to stand upright.
Cut the strut out of a piece of thick card – the length of it should be about half of the length of the frame.
The strut should be in the shape of a tie, like this:..
Cut a piece of your covering paper 3/8 in (1cm) larger at the sides and pointed end – on the top allow 1 1/4 in (3cm). Glue the strut into place with adhesive, then turn in the sides and the pointed end – leave the top extension free.
