Here we go! Here is an idea for a locker or desk

In our family and also our friends’ families as well photos rule the day. Our young people love taking photos of each other and displaying them as well. We are always looking for ideas to find ways to make picture hanging simple, fun, and inexpensive, but still looking so good!
So I have come up with a quick photo frame that can be hung in the locker or displayed on a desk with room permitting.

This was so much fun to make I used chipboard from cracker and cookie boxes to make my frame. I love the idea that the photos can be easily slid out or in for a change of focus. I also have an easel for quick standing or you can use a 3M Command strip for hanging in your locker! You can change the photos as you want!
My Craftwell eCraft made a great “postage” stamp frame for my photo holder. It was cut with a pressure of 7 and multicut 2. I cut two pieces and used a water based glue to attach them to each other. I then painted it with acrylic paint.

I used the chipboard again to make a quick easel to stand my frame. Just remember you can also use the command strips as well.

I love how easy and fun it is to make embellishments for my projects as well. Here I used the Craftwell Pro Software to weld my numbers together, then I added a shadow for a dramatic and yet fun embellishment!

I also used a folder to give a slight bit of texture to my Bazzill cardstock frame. I used a photo protector to make the “envelope” which protects the photos from scratches and such.
Just think of how much fun and how many “frames” can fill the inside of a locker door. I am looking forward to helping out with some cute holiday frames and also to share my “stuff” and see what my young friends come up with!
Now just remember that there are other sites to hop along to, your next hop is
then it is off to the main Craftwell site to gather some free svg files as well as a chance to win an eCraft!
Looking forward to seeing you next week!!
Hope that every day is a wonderful one!
