Many couples display their engagement photos at the reception. Here is one creative way to showcase them in style. Hung in the windows of your venue, this simple photo project transforms your love shoot into custom “stained glass.”  With Mother’s Day on our mind, we can’t help but think that this would also be a sweet gift for mom this weekend!

Materials: Printer, Tissue Paper, Embroidery Hoops or Backless Frames, Scissors, Engagement Photo Files

Step One. Print a selection of your favorite engagement photos onto white tissue wrapping paper. The easiest way to print on this type of paper is by taping it completely to a piece of computer paper and running it through an inkjet printer. You can also take the photos and tissue paper to your local copy store.

Step Two. Cut the printed photos to size by tracing the shape of the frame and trimming down with scissors.

Step Three. Carefully, take apart the embroidery hoop and position the cut photo as you would fabric. Secure the hoop and tighten if needed.

Step Four. String simple embroidery thread through the loop at the top of each hoop and hang in a window.
