Grandparents Gifts

This past weekend was Grandparents Day...

So I have seen this idea used with wood blocks... but I didn't have any wood blocks... so I thought I would make due and see what I come up with.

I took a small canvas... painted them... then modge podged some fall paper onto them... added a ribbon.... hot glued on a clip to hold the photo.. and added a few embellishments here and there.
I thought these would be good since they can be put out as decoration in the fall... and since its made with a clip they can update the photo at any time :)

I made a few into magnets also. I figured my dad would prefer a magnet... and a few others might also :)

Here are a few photos. I hope they enjoy them!

Some of the magnets...

Here's a picture without the photo... using the clip they can easily update it :)


  1. These photo albums are beautiful! I like your fall motif. I make photo canvases often, usually around a vacation theme. Please check them out at http://altered-artworks.blogspot.com/2010/08/inspired-by-ocean-blue.html
    Happy Fall.

  2. Love the colors that you chose. They turned out GREAT! Thanks SO much for joining in on Thrilling Thursdays @ Paisley Passions. I hope to see you again next week :)
