Hi, friends in this instructable i will show you how I made my family gifts for this Holiday season, specially if you don’t have a lot to spend with all the prices going up, well, hope you like it and give it a try, and surprise your love ones with a hand made gift made by you ; ) well let's begin.
Step 1: First thing is the tools and materials:
You will need :
Clear Family, friend or a pet photograph, preferable a self-portrait
(but I will be demonstrating the instruction with a 3 person photograph the steps will be the same )
Photo editing software, I use Photoshop 6.0 the old one because i'm using my old computer :( but the steps are the same in the new Photoshop
xacto knife with new sharp blades, JUST BE CAREFUL!!!
A self-healing mat is nice and makes cutting much easier (you don't have to have a huge one). I've also heard of using a piece of glass to cut on, but I'd cut my finger off for sure.
Cardstock or other material for your template. You can use a cereal box, just cut it to fit your printer
a Canvas frame.
Spray paint. (I will only use 2 color the black and gray in matte finish )
Computer whit a laser printer.
