Well like I have mentioned before I have a LONG list of DIY projects I have been wanting to try out. Some are my own ideas, others I have found online or in magazines. This one was featured on Design*Sponge. The original idea is for a travel case that not only holds pictures, but doubles as a frame. The boys and I decided to make one for Chris when he travels, but I just stuck with the tin (an altoid tin I had painted black for a previous project). I just can’t picture him unfolding the little easel and displaying pictures with a magnet. He really liked our version….though when I got the paper out of the closet it looked brown, not purple. I think this would be so much cuter with better paper, but most of mine looked too girly for Chris. You can find the instructions HERE on Design Sponge….
Ways to use this idea:
* Gift for a traveler
* For a hospital stay
* For teachers…filled with pictures of the class from the year
* For grandparents
* For a child going to camp…filled with pics and notes
I’m thinking of making one for each of the boys filled with pictures of Chris and I for them to keep with them while we are at the hospital with the new baby….
