Creative Christmas Photo Holders

12/12/2016 | Lynn Lilly
Hello! Nadine here today sharing how I created these Christmas Character Photo Holders using Deflecto’s VersaGrip™ Magnetic Sign Holder. These would be cute to put on the mantel each year with your kid’s school photos or different photos of family members.
Step 1 – Print out some headless Christmas characters, or if you are good with photoshop, you can erase the head off of them. The characters should be about 5½” from neck to feet when printed to cover the sign holders. Fussy cut them out.
Step 2 – This is optional but to enhance some of the details of the images I used a VersaMarker and some Embossing Powder on different areas over the images.

Step 3 – Use a liquid adhesive like Beacons 3-in-1 to adhere the characters to the sign holders.

Step 4 – Cut a strip of Deflecto’s Magnetic Craft Sheet to stand the characters on. Since the sign holders are magnetic, the magnetic craft sheet will make it, so they do not fall over easily.

Step 5 – Clip your photos to the VersaGrips add some white tissue paper or something that looks like snow around the bottom of the sign holders to hide the magnetic craft sheet.
Display for everyone to see!
Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
