A new art print needs a fun new frame! How perfectly adorable is this Valentine’s art print from Minted?? The cutest way to remind those I love how much they mean to me.
Ok now lets talk frames…First offI LOVE buying plain white frames from IKEA because they are so cheap but I hate that nothing fits inside them (strange European sizing??) Anywho so I figured my new print needed a new matting AND a little frame facelift. This DIY is so easy and takes no time at all. Now, not only are you giving an amazing piece of art but a personalized frame to go with
Check out Minted’s other Valentine inspired prints. So many amazing prints to choose from.

Cut around the matting to get the right size
Then Lay out your print to see how big you want your new matting to be. I figured that 1 1/2 inches was perfect for the print I had.
Now for the fun EASY part! Get out your washi tape and start taping! This part seriously takes 2 min
Since the corners of the frame end in a diagonal cut ,I wanted my washi tape to be that way too. So I cut each piece in a diagonal
Put in your new matting and your done!
