Creative Photo Corner Mat Layout

Hello crafty friends! Tracy here, and today I am sharing a quick little tutorial on how to create this fun and texture-filled Creative Photo Corner Mat for your next project. Here are all of the details.

Let’s Get Crafty

The first step in creating my Creative Photo Corner Mat, I took my slightly cropped 4×6 photo and cut a regular white cardstock mat for it. Then I cut a larger white cardstock mat for that which was 1/2″ larger in dimension than the previous mat. I took my Creative Photo Corners Silver and added one to the exact middle of each side of the larger mat.

Next, I continued adding Creative Photo Corners Silver around the piece of cardstock to fill in the entire perimeter. Then to finish, added Creative Photo Corners Silver to the corners.

Adhere the photo to the smaller white cardstock mat using Creative Photo Corners Silver. Now, add this to the larger mat using Crafty Foam Tape White.

I created a simple patterned paper and white cardstock layout background. I adhered all the pieces in place using my E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser. Add the matted photo to the layout again using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.

Now it’s time to embellish the Creative Photo Corner Mat layout. I used a combination of foam stickers and ephemera around the layout and added some of the pieces using 3D Foam Squares White Mix and others with Thin 3D Foam Squares Black Mix to add additional dimension.

I even added a piece of ephemera directly to the matted photo using Thin 3D Foam Squares Black Mix.
