One of my favorite things is vintage photos. So when I came across two photos of my mother when she was a child I was head over heels and wanted to find the perfect way to display them. This is what I did.
I started with two picture frame kits from Arnold Grummer. These hold 3"x5" photos.
To cover the frames I used some hand made paper that I made with my medium pour mold.
The photo frame kit comes in 4 easy to assemble pieces.
To assemble the picture frame, first you glue the U shaped piece (this holds your photo) on to the backside of the front of your frame.
Then put your frame face down on your paper. Adhere with glue. A glue stick works great for this. Cut around the outside and cut out the center.
Then add your photo.
Then using a glue stick add the back to your frame and attatch the stand to the back.
For this project I painted the back of one photo frame to match the paper on the front. On the other I covered the back with a coordinating paper.
Here are my finished pieces.
