You will need:
color cardboard, for the frame;
Linking healthy background cardboard;

Because, in terms of construction, the mat-frame is a cardboard cut in the middle of the window, it is best to reduce by or pattern a stationery knife. It is much more comfortable than a scissors and cuts are smoother. Just remember before you start table covers all kinds of substrate, which is not a shame to reduce or scratch the process. In skarpbukinge when these works are used for cutting mat. But if this is not available in your household, you can put a glass, a plastic mat or a cutting board.
Cut out of a colored cardboard box with the dimensions of the future frame. Turn it and draw it from the wrong side of the corners diagonally. So mark the center of the rectangle. Also, away from the center to both sides of the vertical distance almost equal to half the width of the frames that make up your frame. Horizontal, respectively, measuring both sides almost half the length of the photo. And now, based on this layout, build a rectangle that will outline in the frame of the window.
Important! Use to mark a triangle. Line one side of a cardboard sheet at the edge, and measure the distance from the other. Otherwise, the window frame in turn curves.
