Leaf Edge Photo Mat

Leaf Edge Photo Mat

Add dimension to your photos with this creative picture frame project. We all have piles, or files rather, of great photos we’ve snapped on phones, our digital devices, or maybe even an actual camera! At times it can seem like a chore to print them out. But finding creative ways to feature a special photo could be just the inspiration you need to get those precious pics downloaded and displayed in your home. A three-dimensional photo mat is a fun way to tie a theme to your photo while giving it visual excitement. This Leaf Edge Picture Frame Mat project does just that! It’s a springy, impressive looking mat that can enhance any photo.
 
This beautiful picture frame mat may look complicated, but all you need is a little patience and some creative flare. The end result is well worth the work! The three-dimensional effect comes from decorative papers that are cut and mounted in layers with foam-mounting tape. This gives the illusion of looking at your photo through layers of lush foliage. The photo and layers of the cut paper are mounted in a 12 ¾” shadow box frame for the finishing touch. This is a great showpiece for any wall.
