Sorry to those people who signed up for updates on my business "Milly and Mummy" I am not really concentrating on that at the moment, I am back working full time, and plus a mum to a gorgeous 2 year old, a wife, a daughter, a sister and a friend.... I just don't have time to run a business as well!
So... what is this blog going to be about? well I thought that it might be a good place to share my crafty projects, tutorials, and just a general blog about my life! So I thought I would treat you to tutorial on how to make these lovely prints.
I made this one for a Secret Santa gift, but it has found a home on my bookcase! Lucky they are so easy to make, I can just make another!
What you need:
- An old Dictionary or Encyclopedia - the older the better, I found mine in a op shop, it cost me $1
- A printer
- Image, you can join sites that have free vector images, or just google it :-) I found this one by googling "Dandelion Sillouette"
- Nice frame, this one came from the reject shop and cost me $4. Its a good idea to take you dictionary/encyclopedia along with you when you buy the fame, just to make sure your frame isn't too big.
Tear (Yes TEAR) a page out of your Encyclopedia, I am sorry to all the book lovers out there, I promise this was an old unloved Encyclopedia with outdated information!
Trim the edges of the page up so it goes through the printer nicely
Now place it into your printer
|you may need to play round with the orientation, I ended up putting the paper in "landscape" way, but forgot to take a picture :-)|
Next you need to pic a picture, I then just used the default printing program (sorry but I am not a computer savvy person haha)
And you have your picture!
I then used the guide that comes with the frame to cut the print to size
And then framed it up!
And there you have it a cute little Secret Santa gift that only cost $5!
I also made some nativity scene frames, to hang on my wall
|just got to frame these up!|
If you make any of these, let me know, I would love to see your versions!
