Marco de cáñamo

Ya sé que estaréis pensando... otro marco! No sé que tengo con los marcos que me encantan! Últimamente he visto un montón de letras enrolladas con cáñamo así que pensé y por qué no un marco? y aquí está. Como siempre es fácil de hacer y barato, manos a la obra!
I know what you are thinking now... another frame! I don't know why but I have a thing for frames, I love them! I've seen lately a lot of letters wrapped with hemp so I thought, why not a frame? And here it is. It's, as always, a simple and cheap project, let's get down to work.

Cartón 3 piezas
Cola blanca

Cardboard 3 pieces
X-ACTO knife

Modo de hacerlo:
1. Cortar el cartón (las 3 piezas) de las medidas que quieras (el mío mide 22 x 22 cm aprox.).
1. Cut the carboard the size you want your frame to be (mine is 22 x 22 cm more or less).

2. Pegar las tres piezas para que nos quede un marco de cierto grosor.
2. Glue the three pieces so we can have a thick frame.

3. Trazar 4 líneas con un lápiz en el cartón superior y formar una cuadrícula de 9 cuadros iguales.
3. Draw 4 lines with a pencil on the carboard and create a grid with 9 equal squares.

4. Cortar el cuadro central que será donde irá la foto.
4. Trim the central square off , here we will put the picture.

5. Enrollar y enrollar y enrollar el cáñamo.
5. Wrap and wrap and then wrap a little more the hemp.

Primero por los bordes.
 First the edges.

Luego seguir por la parte superior e inferior de forma horizontal.
Then the upper and lower part of the frame horizontally.

Continuar por los laterales de forma vertical.
After that, the sides, vertically.

Y por último, enrollar por la parte central de forma horizontal.
And last, wrap the central part horizontally again

Creo que la explicación no ha quedado muy clara pero espero que con las fotos se entienda. Aquí he puesto el orden en el que tenéis que enrollar.

I think that the explanation is a bit confusing but I hope that the pictures make it clear. Here you have the order you  must follow to wrap the frame.

Ya sólo queda colocar una foto que nos guste y situarlo en algún sitio que se vea mucho! :) Yo todavía no he decidido si colgarlo en la pared o ponerlo en la estantería...
El marco me costó un par de noches de hacer (mientras veía la tele) pero ha merecido el esfuerzo!

Espero que os haya gustado y que lo hagáis!

The only thing you have left is find a great picture, and place the frame in the spotlight of your house :) I haven't decided yet if I'll hang it or if I'll place it on the shelf...
This project was a little time consuming, I made it while I watched the tv but it was worth it!

I hope you liked it and that you make it!
