Photo holders

Sorry it's been so long since I've put anything new up! Here's a fairly quick and easy project I did. I bought some 3 x 3 photo holders awhile back and they are so easy to cover with cute paper and embellish. I have probably 30 of them just waiting to be decorated.

I've made a couple sets in the past, which I'll post pics of at the bottom, but here's my most recent set.
I used papers from a We R Memory Keepers paper stack called "Tiffany". The embellishments and rubons are from my stash. The ribbon, I just bought on clearance from Stampin Up in a set. I love the bunched together look of the ribbon.

And here's a few other examples I've made.

Yep, if you look closely, that's me as a baby! :)

These are my favorite types of crafts to make because they are small and squared off so they are so easy to cover without having to do too much extra cutting with a craft knife. And you can easily personalize them for anyone. You can never have to many photo holders IMO. I have another 2 that I'll post in a few days that I'm giving as gifts. I'll just put their cards in the photo part.


  1. really cute! what a great idea for a small gift! where did you get the holders?

  2. Thanks. I bought them at Oriental Trading. Here's a link to them. I don't really like their scrapbook papers because they are too flimsy, but their unfinished wood products are inexpensive and fun to alter. They are hollow, which some people don't like, but I love them.
