Origami Fall Frames

Origami Frames

Fall is right around the corner, and we couldn’t be more ready for it. You might recognize these frames from a blog post several years ago now – they were inspired by a method included in a vintage craft book that we’re sharing on Instagram Reels today, where you can see the full video tutorial. This time, we used neutral tones and added on a few pressed flowers for a more natural look. We found these woodland photos online and love the cozy fall feeling they give – scroll to get the links to all these photos below.

what you need:

  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue (gluestick and white glue)
  • Printed photos
  • Pressed flowers (optional)


Step 1
Cut a piece of paper into a square.

Step 2
Fold one corner diagonally across to the other, making a fold. Unfold and do the same for the other two corners.

Step 3
Now fold each outer corner of the square into the center.

Step 4
Flip the paper over and fold these new corners into the center again.

Step 5
Now fold each of these corners that meet in the center back out to touch the edge of the square.

Step 6
Glue your printed photos into the center of the paper frame, trimming if needed.

Step 6
Apply white glue to the undersides of the paper frame – press them down to help prevent the frame from popping open.

Step 7
Decorate the frames with small pressed flowers like we did here, or with painted polka dots, use crayons to draw simple patterns, or leave as is.
