I love making handmade gifts for the holidays for family, friends and even teachers and coaches.
This year I wanted to create handmade frames for our close family members with photos of our boys inside. For my project I used the Zutter Bind-It-All Cover-Alls in the 4" x 6" size with the curved spine and covered it with the new Crate Paper Peppermint Collection.
To make these handmade frames cover the entire Cover-All with patterned paper but before adhering the back page completely down add a piece of twine under the paper for the closure. Embellish the cover and add a button for the twine to wrap around to keep the frame closed.
These handmade frames would be great to make for anyone on your Christmas list and what better keepsake than a photo of their favorite people.
