Smile for the camera! diy

This post is all about pictures. 
My friends and family will tell you that I love Love LOVE taking pictures! I must have hundreds on my computer and each one holds a special memory....

Here's a cute way to frame your pictures with paper. 
(click the image for instructions)

Another cute way to display your photos... Use vintage wooden spools!

What You’ll Need:
1. Camera
2. Printer (or have your pictures printed at a copy center)
3. 8.5″ x 11″ labels
4. Scissors
5. A Canvas of your choosing
6. Paint
Step 1: Take a picture in profile
Step 2: Print profile picture on an 8.5” x 11” label (Available at office supply stores)
Step 3: Cut out the profile using fine tip scissors. Be sure to catch all of the details!
Step 4: Remove the backing of the label and apply the outer part of the label to a canvas. I had
pre-painted mine with a chocolate brown paint and let dry overnight.
Step 5: Using the label as a stencil, fill in the negative space with paint that contrasts the base
canvas color.
Step 6: Remove the ‘label stencil’ and let dry.
Step 7: Touch up the edges of the profile with base color of paint if needed.

I hope you all have a lovely Friday and great weekend!
