Are you making handmade gifts this year? Every year I say I will make gifts and then I make very few. Well, this year I am getting started early (yeah, November is early) and things are coming together. We did have a little mishap – my sister came over and spotted this in my studio and now she wants one too. This one is for my parents.

My dad has been bugging us to get a “new” photo of the whole family in front of the Hollywood sign at Universal Studios. Well, this past Mother's Day we all went to Universal Studios and took the photo. My dad has a small framed print but I know he wants something bigger. And blowing up an 8×10 photo would be grainy…and printing a photo canvas is super pricey. Enter Craft Attitude!


Total cost to create this photo canvas is about $20, including purchasing a pack of Craft Attitude printable film, which can make more than one photo canvas. Here's how I made it:

I also cover how to create ICE Resin paper in this video – I made the stars on the canvas with vintage book pages and ICE Resin.
