How to "French Frame" Your Artwork

Oh Happy Day

As I mentioned in the post Ditching the Frame, I'm always looking for new ways to display artwork without spending a fortune on framing. I came across this rather clever and unique solution using Kraft tape in lieu of a frame over on Oh Happy Day and was surprised by how pretty and finished the final result is.

While this process is new to me, it is popular in France, earning it the title "French Framing." The DIY involves just a few basic supplies: plexiglass, mat board, cardboard, and Kraft paper tape, and is pretty straightforward to put together. Visit Oh Happy Day for more details and the full tutorial.
