Mom had given me six 8x10 photos from my wedding and bridal session for Christmas this past year. That helped me make my decision, but I still struggled with just how I was going to accomplish this task. I finally made my mind up a couple of weeks ago. I didn't want to go out and buy $40.00 frames to put each photo in, so I decided to just do it!
|It was hard to take this picture without having the flash show...I tried to take it from a few different angles.|
I went to Hobby Lobby and found cheap scrapbook paper, but first I had to call my dear, crafty friend to make sure she thought it would look alright. She suggested finding paper that had colors similar to the room I was putting it in and I did just that. This was a very inexpensive route to go instead of buying a matte for each pane. Of course, the following weekend ol' Daddy-o came to visit and boy did I put him to work. Not only on this project, but a few others:) haha. He's just awesome! It actually ended up taking him about 2 hours to turn my old window into a picture frame. I was so happy that he completed my project for me. It turned out so pretty...I just love it!
