A Thoughtful Gift… Thats as cheap as chips!

1 Comment

Running dangerously late in my present buying quest and trying to keep down costs, I’ve come up with this idea, A two sided frame for my family to put on their desks. I’m going to customise them with a photograph of something dear to them and a calendar colour scheme to suit their personality or perhaps to correspond with the colour scheme in their office/ bedroom ect.

What you need

1 x two sided frame from Ikea £1

1 X free 2013 Calendar download

1 X photograph / image / sketch/ inspirational message?

Step 1. Making the Calendar, you can personalise it anyway you like! I used pixelmator to make mine …

2. Choose an Image! I am making this one for my dad so have decided to put a picture of his true love in the frame (his car!) I took this with out him knowing and edited on my phone using Instagram.

3. Make both components the appropriate size, 10cm x 15cm… And put them in the frame! I am Ill in bed at the moment so I haven’t gone out and bought the frame but below I’ve ‘simulated’ what the real deal will look like!

I think this will look great on his desk, and will be useful for the coming year. Below are a few more combination ideas for other friends and family.. and I think for £1 and a bit of imagination – you can’t get much better!

  1. Great idea! I actually have those picture frames, so I might just make one for myself. 🙂
