To craft nice and sturdy frames I suggest working with cardstock paper. You can find nice color set online. I especially like this one and this other.

The bone folder is an optional tool. I like to use it as it helps to make nice and clean paper crease. It only cost a few dollars, so if you like making paper crafts is a smart investment to make.

To create this papercraft, I especially thought about this weird time we are living in right now (will it ever end?).

Most of us can’t see or hug our loving ones and it’s hard.

This heart-shaped frame is super easy to gift! You can slide in an envelope and mail it to your loving one.

Or, if you live nearby, you can drop it in the mailbox or slide it in under the door.

It’s also a great Valentine’s day gift to make with children.

Teens can easily make their own heart frame and the kiddos can be involved by customizing the frame with sharpie and stickers.

I like looking at printed pictures. I know we all have photos on our phones or tablets, but I realize I don’t look at them very often.

I find it very nice to print photos on paper and have them here and there in the house.

It’s super easy to do and it only costs a few cents, I have to do it more often.
