I’ve been meaning to share a few of the gifts that Ryan and I collaborated on for Christmas. But, for some reason, it took a month for me to get my act together.
When we saw photo frames at a local craft show, Ryan and I decided these would make great gifts. Plus – we were sure we could make them ourselves.
So, we did. Here are a few of the outcomes (please forgive the terrible photographs)…
For brother and sister-in-law:
How we did it:Ryan cut out the frames and used a miter saw for the edges. He primed them in black. Then, I painted them black and ordered vinyl lettering from a friend. I attached the photos with photo corners, so they can be exchanged in the future.
It definiitely got us hooked on looking for gifts we can make ourselves. Not only did we save a little dough, the gift was something personal that we hope people enjoy as much as we enjoyed making them.
