Another use for our modern waste of plastic bottles, leftover cardboard packaging and some thrift store clothes- make nifty antique style curved front picture frames for your favorite pictures all out of recycled materials!!!

These make great keepsakes to send to family or friends, or as wedding gifts. And you can make them either permanently closed as a keepsake or hinged to open and close and swap pictures out.

Step 1: Stuff

Picture of stuff
Plastic bottle with gently curving top area
Cardboard- I used a packing box
Fabric of your choice- I used a good velvet that I cut up a thrift store dress to get.
Xacto Knife and/or Scissors
Elmers Glue- or your could use hot glue for some of the edges if you want more instant gratification
Scotch Tape
Sharpie
