Beyond the Scrapbook Photo Crafts - New ideas added!

Posted by   + Show Post

Hello all you creative ladies!

I've been searching for inspiration for miscellanious photo crafts and memorobilia & keepsake crafts that goes beyond the scrapbook. I thought I'd get this thread started so we have a place to share all those great photo craft ideas since mom's always seem to have quite a surplus of photo's around... and we always love to show off our loved ones in fun creative ways.

So please post your photo's and photo craft ideas and/or links to instructions here, I'll be adding some of my favorite ideas I've found to get us started.

Happy crafting & scrapping!

Kristina

Thank you so much for posting this!  I did a vase once for a Christmas gift, NO idea why it never occurred to me to do a candle holder!  Thanks again

Hopefully keargo806 will share with us how she made her candle : ) ... until then here's a tutorial I found for Photo Candles, I thought the extra added embelishments were really cute!

This is the link where I found it:

Personally, I don't think I'd want to ever burn a candle that was so cute & I'm not sure how it would do flamability-wise once it gets down to the paper photo. (Who could ruin something so memorable?) I'm thinking of decorating a glass candle holder by decoupaging a photo & embelishments on it with Mod-Podge & decorating similar to the candle above but that way I can burn the candle & still have my craft-work last. Just another idea!

I honestly can't recall where I found the photo's of the craft idea, (I'm always collecting photo's of cute craft projects), however the wood block letters can be found at most craft stores, Michael's has these plus other shapes of letters & even Walmart craft section has wood letters. I'm guessing that the letters in the pic. were just glued onto a square of wood as the base (use strong wood glue).  I do know that the letters will stand on their own without a base as long as they don't get knocked around much. Hope this helps! :o)

Has anyone made this? If so, where did you find the supplies?

I haven't made this project (yet) but I have found acrylic at hardware stores (Home Depot, Osh, etc.) in differing sized sheets that they can cut for you to the size you need (sometimes for a nominal fee, some places they do it for free when purchasing the product there). Some thinner acrylic, you may even be able to cut with sharp scissors. Helpful tip: even though the directions state to use 6x6 squares of acrylic, you could also use 4x6 size just as easily & it would be easier to fit a photo to.

For the window decal film, if it's not in your local craft stores (usually the larger craft stores will carry) can usually also be found in office supply stores (Office Depot, Staples, etc.)

The book rings can be found most anywhere, office supply store, Walmart or Target (in the office supply section), I've even seen them at the grocery store. 

If you need any additional assistance in where to find an item, etc., feel free to message me directly. :)

Thanks so much for your help. I think I am going to go on a hunt this weekend for these supplies. I really want to make this, I think it would look really good hanging in my kitchen.
