Why not try a different look by creating stunning representations of your photos on wood or canvas? Transferring photos is one of the simplest projects out there, offering an easy way to deliver big results for a unique photo heirloom you’ll be proud to display. These projects make wonderful personalized gifts for friends and family as well, while providing a great family craft project that anyone can do. The best thing about this project is imperfections add character to your finished piece, allowing you Type A’s to relax and throw your perfectionism out the door. With a photo- copy of your favorite black and white or color photo in hand, along with a few other sup- plies you can easily find at Hobby Lobby or your local craft store, you can create a look you’ll love at a price you can’t beat. 72 April/May 2017
