What grandmother wouldn’t love a picture of their grandchild?  It’s always our default gift when we have to get things for the grandparents in our family.  My sister says its not fair because our gifts always top hers because our gifts have pictures of our kids.

The clear printable stickers come in a pack of 8, but you will only need a very small amount (less than 1/10 of 1 sheet).

Print out your favorite image.  I printed mine out in black and white.  I find that images that have lighter backgrounds work best for this effect. You can print a few images to see which one works best for you.


The frame comes with removable glass protective sheet that you can use for your template to cut the image.


Cut the rectangle photo and remove the image from the backing.  Doesn’t it look cool?


I love the translucent image in the frame.


Take your ribbon and cut it to 10 inches in length.


Dab a little glue onto the ribbon and attach the finding.  I used a paper towel over the metal so it wouldn’t scratch.


You could attach one frame pendant on each end or maybe a jewel charm on the other.  The possibilities of these pretty bookmarks are endless!
