Easy-Peasy Occasional: A Use for Old Photographs

February 5, 2012 § 8 Comments

Last week, for my first day of A Month of Letters, I sent a birthday card to a friend of mine.  I made it myself and you can create your own remarkably unique creations by following the same easy steps I took:

  1. Find an old photograph.
  2. Embellish it.
  3. Place in envelope.
  4. Giggle all the way to the mailbox.
  5. Wait with great anticipation for it to reach its destination.

I started with this:

I have no idea who these people are. It was an abandoned family portrait, long ago separated from its family. Since it has no sentimental value to me, I felt the best thing I could do was to reuse it and give it a brand new purpose.

With the help of a pack of brightly colored paper, my trusty scissors and some glue, I transformed it into this:

Oh, joy! Don't they look much more festive now?

Some close ups:

After trimming the frame, this beauty of a card just fit into a 9″x12″ envelope and I definitely did some giggling along the way as I pictured the reaction it will get when opened.
