Layer various different frame sizes and be sure to fill the vertical space between the mantel and ceiling with a taller frame.

Originally posted by Sweet Paul Blog and shared by Jeck Garcia on, turn your photos into gift tags using:

  • Color copies of pictures
  • Tag puncher
  • Hole puncher
  • String

Use a tag puncher and punch out tags of your pictures.

If you don't have a tag puncher you can just cut the tags out by hand.

Punch out holes using a hole puncher and fasten a string to the photo.
