We recently took a trip to Colorado for my daughter's wedding. While in town, I was in search of a gift for my neighbors. Finding nothing except novelty trinkets likely made in China, because we didn't have too much time for serious shopping... I decided to make them a gift.
They were just returning from a trip to Hawaii so I scooped up some of their facebook photos, printed them as 4x6 and created a mini adventure travel book for them to hang. Giving the ability to share the trip memories with guests who visit their home.

Close To My Heart stamp set (birds)
Deck Cleat Wall Hanging decor from Hobby Lobby
I simply printed 3x4 photos from my local one-hour shop (design 2 photos on a 4x6 and then one-cut for the 3x4 size). I stamped the chipboard with a design that represented their Hawaii trip. Hole punched in the corner and then wrapped up the gift and the wall decor in a cute package. All set! Handmade gift in minutes!
Each design, whether computer graphic or paper and embellishment - is a my own personal work of art. Learn how it was made or just get ideas for inspiration!
