The Best Blogger Crafts: Retro Muffin Tin Frame

the-best-blogger-crafts-banner

This month we’re celebrating our bloggers and their creativity. In January 2014 at CHA, bloggers gathered at our CHA Networking Event to meet companies and to work more with us here FaveCrafts. After getting a bunch of crafty swag from the event, they set out to make projects out of the materials they were given. We’re featuring these projects all month with giveaways so you can make your own versions of their wonderful crafts.

Retro Muffin Tin Frame

Retro Muffin Tin FrameIn our contest last month, each of these blogger crafts were voted upon by fans for a great prize! This Retro Muffin Tin Frame by Michele Kovak from Thoughts of a Cardmaking Scrapbooker was voted #1!

If you like the look of retro craft ideas, then you’ll have so much fun making your own Retro Muffin Tin Frame. You can even use an old, rusted muffin tin. You can use glitter, paper and even paint to bring your piece to life. Be sure to add plenty of details to your frame so it really stands out from a sea of boring decorative items.

It  seems only right that I feature some awesome photo crafts for the occasion as well. I’ll admit, I’m not a professional photographer by any means but I still love to take pictures. A lot of pictures! Whether I’m using my digital camera or just the point and shoot on my phone, I’ve documented everything from my family vacations to the daily lives of my pets (my dog is very photogenic).

If you are a shutter bug like me  and want to learn how to take better pictures you should take a look at these photography tips from our friends at CreativeIncomeBlog:

It’s so much fun to go back and look at pictures because they bring back so many memories. I can almost taste that gelato I posed with in Florence or hear the sound of my sister laughing as I hugged her at graduation. Right now all my pictures are stuffed in an overflowing hat box in my closet. It’s a shame that my precious memories have been pushed into the back of the closet. If you are in a similar situation and wondering what to do with photos, then you should check out these creative photo crafts. It’s time to think outside the frame (and scrapbook)!
