  • Nice craft for the little ones !


  • A lovely gift hand crafted by your grandchild like this is something I truly treasure.


  • Why do the mums always get the photo frames with the flowers? What about making robot photo frames, or alien photo frames or monsters? You could easily do this with the egg cartons, too. And a photo frame by itself means nothing to me unless you put a photo in it as well. The thought needs to be present in a thoughtful present and a photo frame by itself is a ring in. Would you make Dad a floral photo frame without a photo?


  • A present like this would mean so much to a Grandma, or to a Mother whose children are a boarding school most of the year.


  • It sounds remarkably easy to make.


  • It’s very cute and I bet it’s fun for the kids to make.


  • I love to give a favourite photo in a pretty picture frame as a gift.


  • An unusual and also unique photo frame – I like the look of this photo frame as it looks lovely and handmade.

    • A good present for the grandparents too. :)


  • My all time favourite gifts from the kids have always been the home made ones. I already have a couple of hand made photo frames, but would be happy to add to them


  • This really is such a great idea. I hope my kids do this when they’re older


  • Picture frames are such a good idea because they can be decorated in so many ways.


  • Cute :)
