Heritage Double Frame — By: Susan Cobb





Designer Tip: This slide mount frame is the perfect place to showcase a heritage photo, or change the color scheme to feature your favorite retro or modern photo!


  1. Cover one super-size slide mount with brown on ivory floral paper, trimming the excess paper around the outer edges of the slide mount only. Punch two 3/4” circles out of scrap paper and overlap the circles onto two opposing inner edges of the slide mount. Use an X-acto® knife to cut the paper out of the slide mount window, cutting around the punched circles to leave two half circle tabs. Discard the 3/4” circle scraps, turn the slide mount over and ink the edges with black.
  2. Cover one large square slide mount with brown sponged paper and ink the edges. Glue a photo behind the slide mount window, trimming the excess photo even with the edges of the slide mount. Mat on brown burlap paper, then glue behind the window of the super-size slide mount. Mat the super size slide mount on brown sponged paper, trimming the mat to 1/16” and inking the edges. Use a 1/16” hole punch to add one black mini brad to each of the half-circle tabs on the super-size slide mount.
  3. Cut out the “memories” fragment and ink the edges, then glue it diagonally across the top left corner of the super-size slide mount, trimming the excess even with the edges of the slide mount mat.
  4. Cut a 2 1/2” length of black grosgrain ribbon and fold it in half. Secure the loose tails behind the top of the slide mount to create a hanger. Cut an 8” length of black grosgrain ribbon and trim the tails at an angle. Tie the ribbon length into a shoestring bow, then use a Glue Dot™ to attach the bow in the bottom right corner of the slide mount window.
