From Tracy's Studio


Easy, elegant, basic Picture Frame for 5x7 inch photo
(or equivalent proportion):

4 border pieces may be of any color/texture glass you choose.  Center rectangle should be clear, preferably non-glare glass, and will get soldered into place.  Tip: It is less expensive to purchase a 5"x7" frame at your local general store or dollar store to obtain the necessary cardboard easel back, plus the glass of the exact size you need is included with it!  Otherwise the easel back alone will generally cost over $2.00 at your local stained glass supply shop.  You will also need to purchase (at stained glass supply shop) "channeling" - the brass slots/grooves on 3 sides (left, right, & top) on the back of the frame, which the easel & photo slide into.  The channeling must be soldered on at each of its four corners.  If you don't own snippers, request that the channeling be snipped down to the appropriate size for you when you purchase it.

Note: Black lines of pattern represents approximate thickness to be allotted for solder lines.  Always use pattern to line up cut pieces on before soldering.  Be sure to refer to Tips on proper use & storage of patterns.  Inner frame dimensions are 5 x 7 inches; total outer dimensions are approximately 7 3/8 x 9 3/8 inches.  May be oriented horizontally or vertically.
