It was a usual day. I came from a store to buy my craft supplies from Deco Art. I have more stickers, sticky notes and washi tapes to add on my collection. It was too hot so I chose to go inside Fairview Center Mall and buy a soda. I remember I used to go here when I was in high school (of couse, after school hours). I passed by Tronix which I believe students prefer if they want to print photos. Well, of course, I also used to for photo printing services. Had a good idea then of printing some of me and my boyfriend’s photos which are stored on my phone. Also, in an instant, I thought of doing a DIY gift for him. It’s our 63rd monthsary the next day. Cheesy ba? We still celebrate monthsaries. ❤
When we were in college, I used to give him cards and scrapbooks containing our photos. He loves it whenever I gave him one. When we started working, I stopped doing and giving him these gifts like these. Maybe, because of lack of time. [excuses…]
and other things you need for designing
Do It Yourself Picture Frame Greeting Card
Lay the photo on a paper and glue it.
*this photo is a commissioned artwork of Rob Cham, a Filipino illustrator and comic artist. It’s a caricature of my boyfriend who happens to be the drummer of Persephone*
Trace the photo on a designer paper to come up with the frame. I used a designer paper with a G-Clef design. You can use any design you want. For my project, I used musical notes because my boyfriend is a musician.
Glue or paste the photo on a bigger blank canvass. Put the frame on top of it then trace the outer frame.
I just bought a new sticky notes with musical note designs. I thought of cutting those. You may choose other designs you want.
I wrote my greeting here and attached this at the back of the card.
Put some more designs you wished to use on designing your Picture Frame Greeting Card.
Here’s my DIY Picture Frame Greeting Card. So happy to have given my boyfriend a gift which I did myself.
