Sometimes the nicest Valentine we can give are those we make from whatever we find in our cupboards, drawers, and closets. If you know your Valentine treasures a special photo - whether it's a photo from your wedding day, one of your child or pet, why not make a gift of it. An old book can easily be turned into an unusual frame. It only takes minutes to do and is a great way to showcase your favorite photos along with your favorite hardcover books. The book frame stands on it’s own and, best of all, the book is still completely readable.
To Make a Book Photo Frame:
Take a photo that you want to use and copy it - don't use the original unless you print it off online and can make others. Open up the book and centre the photo on the inside of the cover and draw an outline. Remove the photo and then draw another line around the original one making it slightly small than the photo. Use an Xacto knife to cut out the opening. Glue the edges of the photo and place it over the opening (on the inside) pressing down and you're done. Wrap it all in pretty paper and give it to your sweetie.
