Let’s Make a Super Frame!

Is your dad a superhero? Make him this cool comic book frame as a gift! It's a fun, budget friendly project that any guy will love.

Step 1: Cut out squares of paper from your comic book. If you don’t want to cut up a comic book, get laserjet color copies made at your local print store. Make sure they are laserjet so they won’t bleed when Mod Podged!

Step 2: (Optional) Sand your frame.

Step 3: Use Mod Podge to adhere the comic book squares to your frame. Note that my preschooler did this part all by himself. This craft is perfect for little kids because Mod Podge is fairly forgiving and dries clear at the end. So you don’t have to worry making things “perfect!”

Once all the images are adhered to the frame, cover everything with a thin coat of Mod Podge to seal it in place.

Step 4: Once the Mod Podge dries, flip the frame over and cut off any excess bits with a craft knife.

Step 5: Add a special message to the back of your frame with permanent marker.

Step 6: Put your photo in and you’re all set!
