Pop-Up Photo Box (Gift Idea)

Gift Idea by: theDIYvillage.com

Earlier this month I got the February issue of Country Living.
Do you remember last month when I took a simple dollar store pine box and made it into a monogrammed jewelry box?
I gave it to my mother for Christmas.
She absolutely loved it, that was until I took it back from her (she can thank Country Living for that).

As soon as I saw this project I knew I had to convert her jewelry box into a fun pop up photo box.
Plus with my parent’s 43rd wedding anniversary coming up I thought this would be great.

It was really easy to make.
I just needed some scrap book paper, glue, ribbon, and some pictures.

I picked photos from their wedding album.
Squared them up in PicMonkey, and then had them printed at the local pharmacy.

I love how this turned out, so much that I am going to make one for Matt and I.
And seriously how cute are my parents?

For $ 5.00 and two hours time I have a great way to remember their special day!

    What size did you square them to? How did you do it on pic monkey? Cropping or is there another way? Sorry I know nothing about editing photos.
