Canvas photo wraps.I LOVE the look of canvas…and this lets you create 3–and it’s ridiculously easy!

baby canvas

here’s what comes in the box… DSC02354

okay. it might look complicated..but it’s SOOO NOT!

watch this short video..it seriously sums it up so easily (i’ll give you a basic rundown though)

first–(and literally the hardest part of the whole thing) is figuring out what to turn into a canvas.

i needed a quick baby present so i got on my silhouette studio and designed this for them…(found the basic layout on pinterest..and now for the life of me can’t find it again)

i used my silhouette studio as opposed to picmonkey cause i can use all the fonts on my computer and not limited to the ones that picmonkey has…

(i prolly should mention that they had twins.)

you print them on the special paper they include (makes it look legit) DSC02403

here’s a little tip when using your silhouette studio is that you click registration marks to make sure it fits on the paper…but unclick and it won’t print…

which i learned the hard way.

luckily it wrapped around so it wasn’t that visible.

you open up the white frame thing…and take the red tape and put it all around the edges.

then you peel off the red to make it sticky.

lay down the paper face down and place the frame to match up. rub the sticky part to make sure it’s stuck.

then you cut the corners…(look write above these words)

and then you fold up the sides and clip them with those little things hanging off (okay. watch the video. seriously)

this is what the back looks like.

it folds over the sides all nice and neat and looks like a pro did  it (and took a minute tops)

you will want to remember that the inch around the picture will be used to fold over the sides so make sure you don’t have an important part on the edges.

(oooooh. i later got a picture of the twiners..

look how cute it is all together:

baby canvas

just think of all the fun possibilities–these would be so much fun for a mother’s day gift. pictures of the grandbabies. or you could have your kids draw a picture and print it off onto the paper..

and i was going to print a  picture of me at my wedding. my mom at her wedding and my mother in law at her wedding. i think that would be so fun on my wall in my room. i might just have to go buy another set of canvas wraps!

these fun canvas wraps are available at office max and you can go HERE for more info

they also have these fun glitter and 3-d certificate…perfect for teachers or mom of the year awards!!!

  1. Those look AWESOME! Don’t you just love the Silhouette? Great post!

    Could you do these if you don’t have a Silhouette?

  4. Such a cute idea wonder if I can get them in Australia? I have recently become an aunt to triplets (a boy and 2 girls, non IVF first pregnancy) so it would be cute to do something similar to this along with their first ever family photo (I would need 2 packs but it won’t be that hard to find a use for the other 2, actually considering another friend is expecting a baby I could do one for them once their little one is born).

  5. How cool is that!?! I love wrapped canvases! The baby gift you made is adorable by the way! Would love to receive something like that!

  6. I LOOOOVE it! such a good product! Thanks for sharing Kim!

    You have the best blog ever. So much info and I just love to check into your blog knowing I will always find something that I would try. Keep up the good work and thanks for the photo canvas ideas. Still learning my Silhouette but I think I could do this. Might need to call you to walk me thru.

  8. This is the greatest invention!

  11. Where do you buy the wrapped canvas packet? It’s so cute!

  12. Seriously. Brilliant. (And yours are so cute…)
