Metal Accented Photo Journal

By: Linda Peterson for AMACO

A photo journal accented with wire and metal sheets becomes a great display piece for the coffee table.  This is a great way to display your favorite photos, or give it as a gift to a close family member or friend.  Personalized photo journals also make great conversation pieces, and they're a fun way to show off all your favorite pictures from a recent vacation, wedding, or just from hanging out with your family and friends!
