So if you're not sure about the best way to pack your picture frames
we'll show you how
Before you know it, you'll be packing your picture frames like a pro
When packing picture frames, you'll need a few materials
thick brown packing paper, mirror boxes
a roll of packing tape, and a permanent marker
Now that you know what you need, let's jump right in!
Before you start packing, you should set up a packing area, like the one you see here
Use a moving blanket or something similar to protect a tabletop or other surface
and then gather all of the supplies you’ll need.
Lay the picture frame in the middle of the stack of brown packing paper
and wrap it in the same way you would wrap a gift
Neatness isn’t important
just make sure it’s wrapped tightly
Use plenty of tape to ensure the frame is secure
Even though the frame will be put into a box
it’s a good idea to label it once it’s wrapped
You can indicate which picture it is and to which room it belongs in your new home
Next, start preparing your mirror box
Generally, a mirror box is made up of two pieces that fit around the frame
and can be adjusted to whatever size you need
Take one section of the mirror box, and stuff some packing paper into the corner and sides of it
This will give your frame some cushion Do the same with the other side of the box
Next, slip the frame into one side of the box and press it firmly into the paper
Add some extra paper around the frame if necessary
Then, slide the other portion of the mirror box into the first and over the frame
Push the two pieces of the box firmly together to ensure the frame won’t move around
If you’re packing a bigger frame, you may need to use four sections of mirror box, as shown here
Tape all the way around the box several times, and in a few different places
That way the box won’t come apart while in transit
Once your picture frame is packed, label the box with its contents and room destination
Now your frames are ready for the move
