Hello all , Today am posting a photo frame / calendar that is totally handmade.

Initially I took a  piece of cardboard  and pasted the red colour sheet upon it. Then I took another cardboard and stuck the pattern paper on it. I always a  pattern paper which has Indian designs on it. Since i dont get it in US i decided to make myself one.  I made two stamps by cutting the design from foam sheet and pasting it onto a cardboard. I stamped my designs on a pink and violet  paper.

Does't these looks like the design in our salwars and sarees??

This is my handmade stamps.

I added foam sheet borders and foam flowers ( Handcut).  Pasted a white cardstock in the center for pasting the photo.

I made a small calendar using card stock , black marker pen  and board pins.

Finally , after attaching the photo my handmade photo frame looked like this . ( pic below)

This craft can be hung in the wall and it will be a beautiful wall decor. It can also be personalized and given as a gift to someone.

Happy crafting!!!
