Craft: Photo House Card (Handmade Card)

Photo House Card

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Make a picture-perfect frame card that's filled with Mom and Dad's favorite faces.

Materials

  • Heavyweight white paper
  • Markers or crayons
  • Photographs
  • Craft knife
  • Scissors
  • 3-inch-wide cardboard strip

Instructions

  1. Use crayons or colored markers to draw your house on the paper. Include a window for each family member.
  2. With a craft knife (adults only), cut out window openings.
  3. Place a photo behind each window and tape the photo edges in place.
  4. Use scissors to cut along the house outline. Place the cutout face down and spread glue along the outside edges.
  5. Mount the art on a piece of cardboard and trim the backing so that it is flush with the art.
  6. To make a frame stand, cut a 3-inch-wide cardboard strip that is half the height of the house. Fold the strip in half vertically, line it up with the frame bottom, and glue one side to the back of the frame.
