DIY Photo Display Box

Posted by Natalie Wright
Display your favorite summer snapshots with these whimsical papers and embellishments!

Hello friends! As summer draws to a close, I wanted to share with you one of my favorite ways to display my favorite photos! I always shoot a lots of pictures in the summer, and having a fun way to display favorites always helps me look forward to summer next year. This is such an easy project too! All you need is a few favorite embellishments, and a wood box to create on top off. A scrap of square wood would work beautifully too!

To get started, you will need:

  • American Crafts Dear Lizzy Serendipity Thickers Alpha Stickers - Royal/Foil
  • American Crafts Dear Lizzy Serendipity Cardstock Die-Cuts - Ephemera W/Gold Foil
  • American Crafts Dear Lizzy Serendipity 6" x 6" Paper Pad
  • Adhesive Foam Dots
  • Glue gun and glue sticks
  • Paper Trimmer
  • Scissors
  • 6" x 6" Wood box

To get started, choose your favorite patterned paper from the Dear Lizzy Serendipity paper pad.I choose this lovely astronomy inspired print. It's perfect for my summer snapshots! After choosing your paper, trim it down to 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". Attach it to your wood box with your hot glue gun and glue sticks.

Next, attach your summer photos using a small dab of hot glue. I love these Instax photos I shot, but a single standard size photo would look great too!

After attaching your photos, choose our favorite Dear Lizzy alpha stickers and add them to your box. These stickers are so lovely, and there are a lot of great words and phrases to choose from!

To finish your box, next choose a few embellishments from your Dear Lizzy Ephemera pack. There are some lovely gold embellishments! Attach your embellishments with foam adhesive dots, layering them to add as much dimension as you want.

That's it! Your photo box is now ready for display! I am going to make a few more for around the house, and it will be super easy if I ever want to swap out and update my photos.

I hope your summer was a good one, and remember to print those memories and get them on display!
