friday creative: holiday edition #3

it's week 3 of our holiday projects and i hope you're having as much fun as i am! this week's project is a really fun and easy photo decor project inspired by martha stewart that can start with holiday photos and cards but easily stay up all year, a photo shutter! they make a great spot for not just photos but love notes, artwork, invitations, even mail. look how cute...
-shutters (local bellingham girls, look for sets to "recycle" at the re-store)
-assorted clips
-photos & notes

how to:
-if shutter have adjustable louvers, lock them by "up" with a small nail through the tilt bar and frame.
-paint and sand as desired.
-tuck photos & cards in shutters and secure with clips.
-wouldn't this make an adorable gift? and you could also secure the shutters to the wall in an entryway or kitchen for an organization center, so cute!

happy friday!
xo, carly
