All you need are rulers and cute binder clips to make this DIY frame.

• Wooden rulers
• Gold binder clips (we used 1¼-inch clips)

Make this super simple ruler clip frame for your kid's artwork.


1. Line up two rulers horizontally so all sides line up together.

2. Insert your artwork in between the rulers.

3. Affix the binder clips to the bottom of rulers.

4. Stand up your new frame on the ends of the clips.

Tip: If your child’s artwork is not on thick paper, affix a thin piece of cardboard, like from a cereal box, to the back of their piece. This will help the paper stand upright in the frame.

Perfect craft for back to school – make this simple DIY frame with rulers and binder clips.
