Painted Photo Mats

Today I’m going to show you two variations of glass painted photo mats. This is a great way to create a more ornate design than you can find from store-bought mats. It’s also pretty inexpensive, especially if you plan on doing this with multiple pictures. I first saw a version of this project done by Martha Stewart. Her version used templates from her magazine. I’ll show you how to make symmetrical designs yourself. For this project you’ll need a frame, contact paper, opaque...

Printing on Fabric

Photos can be a great thing to incorporate into fabric crafts. One way to accomplish this is to purchase image transfer paper for inkjet printers.

But you can also just run a piece of fabric through your printer. You don’t need much to do this project. You’ll need a piece of cardstock, spray adhesive, white or off-white fabric, vinegar, a...
