Crafts using pictures

A great way to share your photographs.

Crafts using pictures are a terrific way to decorate your home or create memorable photo gifts. Photographs personalize your décor, but there’s no need to stick to traditional framed photos everywhere. Try something different and wow your guests with your crafting abilities (even if you don’t consider yourself very "crafty".

Crafts using pictures example 1

Gift-giving with photographs is almost always appreciated but, instead of filling your recipient’s home with more frames to find a place for, try incorporating the photos into crafts. Some can even be functional (like mouse pads, coasters, or decorative boxes).

Photo crafts are also frequently more economical than purchasing a similar item at a store and the results are far more fun to look at.

Photo tablecloth Not rated yet
I am interested in putting some of my travel photos on a tablecloth. Is that possible?

Collages Not rated yet
Put meaningful photos in overlapping fashions and that's all a collage is - kind of like a scrapbook but with more pics. Fun too!
