cute gift-3d photo...re-post. :)

Here is a re-post of one of my favorite how-to's...just in time for Mother's Day!What mother or grandmother wouldn't love to get something this precious? A cute 3D photo of their favorite grandchild...The best part is that it is inexpensive AND easy to do! Wanna know how?
First take some photo's of your kids holding something like they would a flower-like a pencil or crayon...nothing too large. I gave Moses one of my button flowers and told him to smell it (one of the few things he will do on command---the boy will smell anything). I couldn't believe how lucky I was to get this face!! If you have an older child you can get them to show you the "flower" this makes a cute photo too...keep clicking until you get one that will work...

Then I took an exacto knife and cut slits along the top edge of his hand (where it looks like the flower going into his hand) and again at the bottom. Then you just slip an artificial flower into the slits...this photo is a 4 by 6 so I used a small flower but you can use any flower you want...especially if you do an 8 by 10. When you put the photo into the frame take the glass out and put it in behind the photo or if you are mailing it, use cardboard to provide support instead of glass. Ta da!!! Cuteness you can do!!

Make sure you let me know if you do this project...I wanna see!!! :)
