Brother UK – How to make a photo frame for personalised home decor


– Make a lovely little baby sampler and you can personalise it to make it completely unique.

Pre prepar a twenty three centimetre square frame by backing it with decorative paper and marking the central point and rough grid lines, which just helps put the tiles where you want them. Put a fifty millimetre roll in the Brother Design’n’Craft printer and choose ‘new design’ and adjust the label size.

Click on ‘art’ and then ‘baby shower’ and choose a picture. Adjust the image to fit the label and print two. Use the second one to cut bits off and decoupage onto the other one for a nice effect. Glide to cut and repeat that for any pictures you want to create decoupage tiles for.

While you’re waiting for all of your designs to print, you can start preparing by peeling the backing off one of each of the designs and sticking them to one of your gold squares. Then start to cut out parts of the second copies and use 3D glue to decoupage them over the top of the first layer. With a nine millimetre roll in the Brother printer, make a couple of chevron flags with the weight and time of birth, making sure your chosen background doesn’t overpower the text.

Take a bit of time to flat glue the other tiles around it, it’s worth it! Because it’s so quick and easy to design and print using the Brother Design’n’Craft Printer, you can create this baby sampler as a gift with baby’s specific details as soon as they’re born.

Having themed categories within the app makes the process so much quicker and easier.
