Floating Frame Project

This beautiful project, designed by Maureen Wilson, features photos, patterned papers, metal embellishments, and fabric.

This frame has four layers of glass. The first is a protective layer, the second has photos, the third has embellishments, and the fourth has fabric squares. This close up shot might give you a better idea:

To make one of your own, follow these simple steps:

  1. If you want to make a grid like the one shown, cut all your photos, papers, and fabrics to 2 inch squares (or use a 2 inch punch).
  2. Next remove the layers of glass from the frame.
  3. Use a dry erase marker to draw a grid on one sheet of glass. Then layer a sheet of glass on top of it so it’s easy to get perfect placement for all your squares. Attach your photos with glue dots.
  4. Repeat for each layer.
  5. When you’re finished, wash the marker off and use that sheet for the top protective layer.
This floating frame makes an eye catching display and is a beautiful way to showcase your favorite photos.
