Framing Our Memories Project

As an educator, you know the importance of fostering creativity and expression in your students. That’s why we’re excited to introduce our “Framing Our Memories” project, a fun and engaging activity that allows your students to make their own DIY photo frames. With our easy-to-use AccuCut MARK 5™ Die-Cutting Machine and Photo Mat #5 die, your students can turn their personal photos into beautifully decorated frames, while also sharing the stories behind their special memories. This project is a great way to promote creativity, self-expression, and teamwork in your classroom. Grab your materials and get started today!

  • AccuCut MARK 5™ Die-Cutting Machine (AC5500)
  • AccuCut Photo Mat #5 (P1465J)
  • Personal Photo (4" x 6")
  • Construction Paper
  • Crayons & Markers
  • Glue or Tape
  • Embellishments (Optional)


  1. Place up to 6 layers of construction paper on the AccuCut Photo Mat #5 die.
  2. Run the die through the MARK 5 die-cutting machine, cutting photo mat for each student.
  3. Have each student glue or tape their personal 4” x 6” photo into the frame.
  4. Encourage students use crayons, markers, and other embellishments to decorate their photo frames as desired.
