No-Bake Recipe for Photo Fun…

Frames can be expensive and the ones that aren’t, can be pretty un-awe-inspiring.  This will be the first of many do it yourself tutorials I post about making something magnificent out of ordinary.  This sunDIY with Curlybell I bake up a special treat that combines your favourite photos and a vintage muffin/cupcake pan.

Almost everyone who has visited my house, has commented on the 12 photo frame in my dining room.  What’s particularly unique about it is that it’s not a frame at all.  In fact it’s an ECKO muffin pan from the 1930’s.  When I found this pan at a flea market many years ago, I decided it was far too beautiful to be hidden inside a cabinet waiting to be put in the oven.  In my case, I used my muffin pan to document the first 12-months of my son’s life:)

Both advanced and beginner DIYers will love this project.

Ingredients

//3//  Build up back of photo circle with adhesive zots.  The traditional muffin pan will only take 1-2.  The 6 muffin pan will take several zots, simply adhered to each other in a pile.
