Made by Me Personalized Frames Review & Giveaway

It’s always a good day when you find one of these on your doorstep!
 Whether you’re three or twenty-nine for the third time, packages are just plain fun!  This one was from our friends at Craftprojectideas.com who periodically send us fun things to try out. 
 This time they were “showing the love” by sending us a fun kit we could use to make personalized photo frames to use as Valentine’s Day gifts! 

The kit contained 2 ceramic frames, a set of 6 ceramic paints, a paintbrush, and instructions.  I have to say, I loved that the instructions were written in very kid-friendly language that I’m sure an elementary schooler could follow on his or her own.

Little Crafter couldn’t wait to get started.  We pulled out a few of our own paintbrushes too so that we didn’t have to keep cleaning the same one in between colors.

Blue and purple were his colors of choice {Purple for the Ravens, of course!}  We gave each frame a base coat and then let it dry.

Then, we went back and added details…which Mommy got to do most of.  The kit is really designed for 8+ year olds, though, so I thought he did really well getting the base coats on there.  He had SO much fun doing it and loved how they turned out.
One thing we did that the instructions didn’t specify was that we pulled out the little plastic piece that covers your photo because I knew inevitably it would get painted on…you can see that the cardboard backing has blue paint on it, so I was right!
Then, once they had dried overnight, it was time to put the plastic back in and add our photos.
Ta-da!  Easy, fun, and personal gifts!
That is, if I can get Little Crafter to part with the stripey one.  Maybe it’ll be his Valentine gift to himself…
And here’s the best part: Craftprojectideas.com has generously offered to give one lucky One Artsy Mama reader a Made by Me Personalized Frames kit just like the one we received.
