Holiday Homeade Frames????

I was just wondering if anyone knew how to make homeade picture frames to give as gifts? I come from a family that loves to take photos and it gets tiresome to just keep them in an album. So, hopefully, someone creative out there might know how to make a rather cheap photo frame!

Thanks,
Janie

I just saw this when I took my kids for their pictures.  It was a shadow box  that was scrapbook.  This one was Christmas themed. There was a spot for a picture to go.  It was so cute. I think I am going to look into see if I can make one.

There are so many things you can do with frames.... you could paint the frame itself or leave it , then cover the mat with a nice fabric....you could paint the frame with different fun designs- polka dotting is super easy with the eraser of a pencil dipped in paint....  you could decoupage the frame with whatever- pictures, fabric, etc., you could glue buttons, ribbon, dried/artificial flowers around the frame.....  you could antique it with crackle finish, you could find those cutouts (metal or wood) and glue them on to a painted frame (family, love, sisters, etc....)  Is that kind of what you were thinking of- if not, just disregard it all..... :)  I've seen on more than one craft show where they glued fabric to the mat of a frame to make it "trendy"- it doesn't have to look cheesy.... same with the dried flowers, etc, it's all in the presentation....  Craft stores have a lot of unfinished frames- some flat front, some not, but you could also recycle old frames of your own, or get cheap cheap from thrift stores...  Good luck!  Kathryn

God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

I own a home daycare and what I'm doing for the parents is picking a picture of when the parents came to parent participation day. Then I have mats to go in the frames. I'm letting the children paint the mats themselves for a personal touch for their parents.
