7.2.1 Step 7: Measuring the Hole

Activity symbolActivity: How Would You Mark the Matting to Cut Out the Hole for the Photograph?


The easiest way would be to use a pencil and ruler to mark the border of  inches from the top, the bottom and the sides of the matting; then measure the width and length of the rectangular hole to ensure that it is very close to the  inches width and the  inches length you want for the photograph.

Now you are ready to cut out the hole. If you are careful, and use a craft knife and a ruler, you will have a rectangular piece of matting that you can use later for a smaller photograph!
