I came across two really cool projects and you’re going to want to do each one! The first one is a project utilizing your own photographs making customized coasters. I just finished reading the instructions and was so amazed at how simple it seems, that I had to share it with you. As regulars here know, I am a HUGE proponent of getting your photos OFF the computer (and off CDs) and into print. This particular project will provide you with a unique way to show off or showcase a few of your favourites.
Kelly over at Carrot Top Mom blog has the instructions so you can Make Your Own Photo Coasters. Head over to check it out. I’m going to make some too! What a great gift idea. If you comment on Kelly’s easy peasy project, let her know I sent you.
Speaking of another Kelly, don’t forget that Kelly James of Jax Does Design is featuring my equine art and she has a giveaway with the draw happening on Sunday, and the winner being announced at her blog on Monday.
Here is one more easy peasy project for your family photos. Since I was sharing the link to the photo coasters, I thought I’d see if anyone had great instructions on making photo cubes. Well, sure enough! I read through a variety of results from my search and am sharing two links, each equally easy. Head to the brown paper packages blog for her cute ideas and easy instructions (and more really good craft ideas if you care to browse around there). Check out the simple instructions the Alphamom blog has provided on making your own handmade photo cube. With Valentine’s Day coming up either of these two projects would make a great Valentine gift for the sweetheart in your life. But don’t limit yourself to Valentine’s Day — make them anyway.
What unique crafts or unique ways have you turned your photos into something other than prints?
