Step One

First of all we need to cut the strips for the frame to the correct size.
In your kit there will be eight miter cut strips - four wide and four skinny.




Take one of the wide strips and measure 8 inches along the longest side and mark.



Take one of the other wide strips and lay it on top of the marked strip with the point on the eight inch mark.



Draw a line along the miter to mark where to cut the strip so that it is the correct length and still has the miter cut.




Use a steel rule and craft knife to trim the strip as shown.



It should now fit along your 8x87 canvas with an overhang of a couple of millimetres.



Use the cut strip you have just cut to measure and cut the three remaining strips so that they will form a frame that fits around your 8x8 canvas.
Don't stick anything down yet.
