The Origami Photo Frame is a great way to show off a favorite photo, drawing, or business card. There are so many items that would benefit from one of these lovely frames. You will find the written and pictorial pattern for the Origami Photo Frame below. There are also instructions at the end of the pattern on how to make the frame any size.

Origami has been one of my hobbies since I was 8 years old. My grandmother introduced me to origami and it remains something that keeps her close to my heart. I’m pleased to be able to share this ancient art form with you! You can find more Origami Pattern Tutorials here:

Origami Photo Frame Tutorial

Only one side of the paper will be seen after an image has been added to the frame. Be sure to crease well after each fold.

Step 1: Fold paper in half along long side, then unfold.

Adjusting Size

The origami photo frame can be made to any size rectangle as long as you have paper large enough. First determine the height you want your frame (H), next determine the width (W), and last determine how thick you want the frame border (B).

Cut your rectangle so it is H + (2B) by H + W.
So, for the image below my picture was 4.75″ high and 5″ wide, and I wanted the border to be .25″. So that meant my paper needed to be:
4.75 + (2 x .25) by 4.75 + 5
which equals: 5.25″ by 9.75″
The paper used for the frame below is from Dress My Craft.
