I did this frame design for a 4×6″ photo many years ago, painting the design directly onto white cotton, which was attached to mat board with hot glue, before I invented the washable, sewn, & no sew, photo frames. I wanted to do some kind of abstract, modern art. Very feminine, folk art looking. I think the term is abstract expressionist, possibly. I was just doodling. Anyway, so I took the 2 ounce craft store squeeze bottle paints, mixed them with textile medium, and painted in the color, with the lines that I transferred from tracing paper, pencil on one side, iron on heat set ink transfer paint from Deka paints on the other, ironed to the cotton. Later, I scanned the frame, and tweaked it in Photoshop, to clean up things, make it look more digital, if you will.
This is a one sheet printable, for making your own 4×3″ convertible, frame pin ornament, for a 2×3″ photo, the kind popular with the new instant print photo cameras and smartphone portable photo printers, where the strut leg and 1 1/4″ metal brooch pin back (35mm long sold on Craftsuprint in Supplies) are removable / interchangeable. The side of the sheet gives you thumbnail photo ideas of how you can use the frame pin ornament. It is tabletop as well as wall hanging. You can use these as favors or place card holders, door or drawer knob hangers, gift tags, ornaments, tabletop small frames, name badges, you name it.
All you need are:
2 lengths of ribbon, 1/8″ (3mm) wide by 2 feet (2/3 meter) long, & 9″ (23cm) long by 3/8″ to 1″ (9mm to 2.5cm) wide
hot glue & low temp glue gun or acid free glue stick or double sided scrapbook tape, thread if you want to sew it, printing onto:
one sheet of washable, inkjet printer fabric A4 size (8 1/2″ x 11″)
or A4 size paper card stock
hole puncher or pointy, embroidery type scissors
acid free, clear sheet protector for removable protective photo sleeve, cut to the size of the photo, found in scrapbook album sections, art supply, craft store, stationers, office supply stores, big box stores
6″ hook & loop, sew on or sticky back Velcro
metal brooch pin back 1 1/4″ or 35mm long
1 foot or 1/3 meter of ribbon for hanging as an ornament
If you print this on washable inkjet fabric, just make sure that the inkjet fabric is labeled as washable. You can sew the outer edges of the panels together, but if you don’t sew it, its still made to be washable. Just take out the photo & protective sleeve, the metal brooch pin back, and place the frame into a lingerie bag, wash in the cold, delicate cycle, using mild detergent like Woolite or Dollar Tree Woolwash, no fabric softener. Then stand on a towel to dry, or hang with pant hangers with plastic clips, possibly hot glue snips of sponges inside the plastic clips, as to not make clip indentations in the fabric.
For paper or even Cricut printable vinyl, for paper especially, you can cover it with Therm o Web clear, iron on vinyl A4 size, or use laminating sheets, for a wipable surface.
Great for quick gifts, party favors, place card frames, or ornaments!

Its FREE! Yes, its what I’m using for my business card – I am actually giving out photo frame pin ornaments as my business cards – unique huh! And, yes, it has all of my business info printed all over it, info on how to make it is also ON the frame panels. Its quasi business promotion, quasi freebie for you to make yourself, and EASY. I figured that if you can make this, you can, and will want, to make my other products / crafts / sewing projects, including print my formatted art for functional home decor frames, jewelry buttons pins, kitchen textiles, and even dog accessories.
That’s it for tonight!
