Insert Picture Here


My friend Amber showed me how to make these picture holders last fall (and made me one for Christmas). I thought it was cute, so I went out and bought the supplies to put together my own for gifts. I usually don't post gifts if they are for people that I know do read my blog, but this go 'round....I'm breaking my rule. So, tonight I made my third one as a gift, and I decided I wanted to take a picture, even though I have not sent the other two off yet. So, like it or not-two of you are getting one of these soon in your mail, different paper and colors, but the same idea. This one is for Regan, I'm planning on heading up to Tennessee for a visit in April, so this is for her to fill with a picture from our weekend festivities, whatever they may be. (If you are reading this, Regan...I'm looking forward to my trip up! Sorry that you are my guinea pig, but I'm sure you are over it already). :O) The picture isn't very clear, but basically this is a huge clothes pin I bought at the craft store. I painted it (magenta), and then covered the surfaces with some scrapbook paper I liked. Here's a picture from the side so you can see exactly what this little wooden thing is that I'm discussing. It's a fun, and easy project. I've decorated each one with different doodads etc, but the 'frame' is the same. So, if you need a gift for someone....

I got the wooden 'clothes pins' at Hobby Lobby in the unfinished wood section. I look forward to seeing your creation. :O)
