DIY Photo Frame Gift

So, it’s been a while since my last blog post so I thought I would kick things back off with a DIY project.  Whether you are a teenager who is short on cash or just someone who wants to save some money on gifts for various occasions this might be the thing for you.

What you will need;
A multiple photo frame
A pair of scissors
Photo paper
A printer with coloured ink
This project can really be done on the cheap. The photo frame I am using  cost £5.99 from B&M’s, the photo paper I managed to get from poundland for £1 (surprise I know) and I already had my printer so that cost me nothing. A top tip is that if you don’t have a printer you can still do this project as places such as asda and tesco have facilities that you can pay to have pictures printed.
Basically all you have to do is collect the photos you want to put in your photo frame on your computer then format them into the right size. Then simply print off the pictures and insert them into the frame (you might have to trim a few if your photo frame has weird shapes like mine does) then viola a beautiful DIY photo project ready to be given as a gift. It’s thoughtful and handmade which I think a lot of people will appreciate over something that maybe cost a lot of money but didn’t necessarily require any thought.
If you don’t have a printer and you can’t afford to shell out on getting the photos printed then what you could do is write memories, song lyrics or letters on to some paper and put these into the photo frame instead. It’s still really personal and original and I think anyone would appreciate the fact you had taken the time and effort to give them something that is completely personal to them.
Catchya later, DaisyAndMints. x
