Alternative way of dressing up your photographs

You see people with the photographs hanging by a clothes pin on a string all the time. However, I like to spice mine up a little bit by adding scrapbook paper. Taping scrapbook paper to the back of your photographs helps them look a little more decorated and more appealing to the eye when hanging on the string at the top of your room.

Supplies you will need for this craft:
-Your photographs
-Scrapbook paper
-Tape
-Scissors

Tear out your scrapbook paper from your book (if you just have single sheets of scrapbook paper ignore this step).

Trim down your scrapbook paper to be the size you want for the photograph.

Trim down your photograph. Do this if you want your photograph to look more square or you just want to cut away some excess space in the picture. The photograph should be small enough that it still shows some of the paper that it’s on top of.

Flip over your photograph and put tape on all four corners. You can use glue or other sticky items, but I think tape is the less messy option.

Flip the photograph over and press it down on to the scrapbook paper.

And presto! You instantly have a more decorated photograph and it took hardly any time at all!

After you do this to all your photographs, you can pin them on a string and they will look really nice!
