fabric picture frame for a 5x7" photo

Pocket in the front for the removable photo, and it's protective sleeve, a acid free sheet protector cut to the size of the photo

Removable easel back and strut leg mat board or cardboard that slides out of their easel back and strut leg pockets on the back of the frame

Ribbon to connect the bottom right of the strut leg pocket to the inside between the 2 layers that make the easel back panel

1/8" wide by 5 feet ribbon is thread through 7 holes on 3 inside panels, to connect these 3 panels, to make the photo pocket on the front

Key element that makes the frame structurally sturdy, and allows for the frame to stand on a table or shelf, with it's strut leg pitched out? Thermoweb Heat n Bond! I use their Ultrahold, which is acid free. Heat n Bond is used as the patterns. Print out the patterns and transfer onto Heat n Bond, sold by the 5 yard roll at Michaels, or increments at JoAnn Fabrics. It is a paper backed, iron on, fabric adhesive. It keeps all edges and corners of the frame nice and crisp, all 90 degree corners nice and right angled, and gives structure to the frame. & offer a new Heat n Bond, called EZ Print, which has a 2 sided printable Heat n Bond Lite or Featherlite, 8 1/2" x 11", 10 sheets, for $7.99 or $8.99 ( offered it for $3.99 on sale once!) - print the patterns directly onto EZ Print, trim, iron to the back of your fabric panels, trim corners & seam allowances, fold under inner and outer seam allowances, iron down.
