Round frame mirror made of cardboard

round frame 13

Greetings, friends! I present to your attention another master-class on the creation of decorative frames made of cardboard, prepared by a great expert in this matter.This time Marina tell you how to make a round frame for a mirror . The new workshop will undoubtedly enrich your perception of cardboard and corrugated board within the possibilities of a whole. And following the laid down in it hints and tips, you will be able to do with their hands delicious interior decoration – for the joy yourself and loved ones.

Materials and tools:

– Three-layer corrugated board thickness of 0.4-0.6 cm
– soft corrugated board (dual-layer)
– color double layer micro corrugated: white, green, orange, brown
– a sheet of paper or thin cardboard (for the template)
– the color of the markers of micro, to paint sections (if necessary)
– the orange and green beads
– a pencil
– a compass
– stationery knife
– scissors –
dressmaker pins
– tweezers (for the convenience of placing strips and decorative elements)
– glue for cardboard (important the adhesive was of good quality and when dry – transparent)
– double sided tape
– a hook for the frame
– a round mirror (or photo)


1. Preparation of the frame .

I had two small mirrors, so for them, I decided to make beautiful frames. The size of the frame is determined based on the size of the mirrors or pictures (but note that the photo of the scope of this design then does not remove).

The diameter of my mirror – 20 cm Optimum width of field frames -. 6-7 cm , but you can do more. Thus, we need a circle of cardboard with a diameter of 20 + 7 + 7 = 34 cm .

We draw on the cardboard circle compass required diameter or, if there is no compass, draw out some round object of appropriate size. I found a lid on the pot diameter 35 cm.

We draw another concentric circle whose diameter is the diameter of the mirror.

From cardboard cut out a circle of 2-3, one (bottom) – a rear wall of the frame, one or two others made a circle with a truncated central part – the window for a mirror or picture.

On the back wall of the right anchoring hook (if it is inserted through the hole in the wall).

Check if our mirror included in the carved window to correct, if necessary. A number of cardboard circles with windows depend on the thickness of the mirror and cardboard thickness – mirror should be slightly pritopleno (pictured below mirror turned up the rear surface).

Merge layers of cardboard.

We make the outer edges of the frame. The process I have described in detail in previous workshops (for example here ), so I do not allow myself to repeat.

In short, this frame I pasted two glued strips of soft (two-layer) corrugated board. The width of the outer strip of the sum of the widths of all the layers of cardboard 0.6 cm (height and width of the inner rim strips). The lengths of the bars are equal to a circumference of the frame with a small allowance.

Then glue the mirror. One can choose different ways. I taped it to the double-sided tape, but you can use glue. If the frame is not to be used for the mirror, and for a photo or image, it is better, of course, is to use an adhesive tape. Once the mirror is glued, paste over the inside edges of the frame, as well as external – layer cardboard strips.

Already at this stage, you can start to decorate the frame of a different color, for example, paste a strip of double-layer micro color between the two strips of brown corrugated cardboard. I did not do it in this box but then plastered bordyurchiki and external, and the internal circles of orange and green strips of corrugated cardboard (below it will be seen).

I remind you that all the internal strips for edging and decoration should be the width of 0.6 cm .

2. Decorating frame .

This preparatory work is completed. Getting started decorating the inside of the frame. It is a creative process, and you can do it to your liking. I think that those who are engaged in a classic Quilling could well draw a frame in this technique because the paper is thinner and plastic and has greater opportunities for decoration.

Well, we, corrugated lovers will not be deflected to the side and remain loyal to our favorite material – corrugated cardboard. ?

The entire surface of the circle, I divided into 8 parts. This is easily done if you cut around template out of paper and put it on the layout. The same range of paper is useful for sketching.

Design, as a rule, undergoes changes in the course of 2-3 – this is normal.

For long curls, I snapped  (green, white, Kraft), length 22 cm , but you can make them a little less. If you have a different diameter of the box, specify the size of the elements on their own, according to the situation.

Adding 3 strips together, spin, first one way, then the other end turned in another direction. it is not necessary to glue together the strips as they are moved relative to each other, so they should be free when tightening. They just need to give the desired shape to make it easier to glue on the surface of the frame. Even better glue them individually, but I realized only then when all done.

Glue the curls at the scheduled place, causing a small amount of glue on the lower sections of cardboard strips. We make sure that the colors are arranged equally.

If you are going to use beads, immediately make curls on their size.

Here in the photo still curls in the original version, I later made changes and added more slips.

Making the petals. The order of colors from the center to the edge and their length: White – 7-7.5 cm , green – 8.5 cm , orange – 9.5 cm , white – 10.5 cm in the center, I taped green oblong beads.

If you do not have beads or you do not want to use them, you can leave the middle of a blank tab. Or you can make the roll, lightly dismiss it and flatten the edges so that it fills the space inside the petals.

Next, I filled all the remaining space in small curls of different shapes of gofropolosochek natural (brown) color, but when I looked a general view, I realized that something was missing. For a long time looking for the option you want, and finally realized that the main curls at me too tight. So I  even one green strip on both sides of each curl. Curls are wider and better look.

The remaining space on a frame, I filled the curls of any form of natural corrugated cardboard. And so I turned to the mirror frame.Good luck and inspiration!

DIY: Hand embroidery mirror work designs


Initially as shishy, ​​mirrors are used instead of mica pieces, and later fine pieces of broken glass. Poor people even sewed shining wings of beetles.

Nowadays, there are a small mirror on the open market. If you are going to use them, make sure their edges are well oshlifovany.

Instead, you can use the mirror sequins – the sequins large with a small hole in the side. They are very light, not sharp, and are available in wide range of colors. Some are experimenting with CD-discs – breaking open them to pieces, grind the edges and sew in place zekalts.

So, step by step guide to embroidery.

Prepare all materials. For embroidery you will need: cotton, silk or wool fabric with a tight weave structure of the fabric yarns, hoop, needle sharp, mirror-shisha (or sequins, or coins) and thread for embroidery (silk, cotton, metallic thread). Tightly secure the fabric in the hoop. Insert the thread a needle and tie a knot at the end of the thread. Place shisha on the fabric and sew basic cross stitches. The basic stitches are not necessary to be very careful. But they must be tight, and arrange them should not be too close to the edge of sequins – or shisha simply fall out. Now repeat the basic stitches, but by turning them by 45 degrees, as in the photo. You should have this: Now you can leave everything as it is, and sew the next shisha. This is already well fixed and looks nice. But if you want to create a tight box around the shisha – continue. Pierce the fabric with a needle near a mirror from the inside face. Then, insert the needle under the basic stitches from the center to the edge. Pull the thread and tighten the stitch, then make one stitch in the fabric next to the mirror. Now, following the stitches should be the same as odeyalnye stitches. Again, thread the needle under the basic stitches from the center to the edge, but make sure that the thread forms a loop under the needle when tightening the stitch. From now on, when you make a stitch on the cloth after odeyalnogo stitch, you make sure that puncture the needle through the previous stitch in the fabric. So you make a nice chain around your shisha. At this point, you can take out of the embroidery hoop, but not necessarily. Continue with steps 7 and 8 around the mirrors. If removed from the embroidery hoop, will be able to slightly bend the substrate and better control of the stitches on the fabric. Continue until you reach the end! You can stop at this point, or do embroidery even more interesting. Follow the edging of turquoise chain stitch in tone sequins. Then follow the stitches-rays of your shisha and shine like the sun! Shut down the lovely French knots.
