Handmade Photoframe and Gift Box

Handmade Photoframe
This handmade photoframe and gift box is yet  one more addition to the series of Christmas gifts I am making this year for my daughter's teachers.
Recycled a desktop calendar to make the handmade photoframe adorned with punchcraft flowers

Here is the closeup of the quilled flower.

Quilled Flower
I dont usually make stuff in "orange" but somehow used all orange colored punchcraft flowers.

Made a simple matching oval shaped gift box

Kept the box fairly simple using just a few elements to match my photoframe

I didnt take photos while making it,  but it was fairly simple to make the oval shaped box.

    I am not a huge fan of orange but having said that this project is STUNNING!!!!
    I love the green and orange that you have used and the quilled flower is marvelous. I always love it when someone does something to make me change my mind about colors.

    1. Megha in this frame the photo is inserted from the right where the embellishments are few.In desktop calendar recycled photoframes it is better to make it in such a way as to insert the photo from the sides rather than the top.Since the corrugated paper cannot take a lot of weight it is better to not embellish heavily on the side which you leave unsupported[ie the side thru which you insert the photo]
