Everything You Need to Frame a Photograph
Those graduation and wedding pictures you're snapping this month might be priceless…but the prices they charge at framing shops to preserve your keepsakes will give you a serious case of sticker shock. You're a DIY type, so why not make the frames yourself? Sure, you'll lay out a few bucks for tools, but they're still cheaper than having even a couple of pictures framed at a specialty store—and you'll use them over and over again. Pick up the materials (prefinished molding, glass, mats, foam backer board) at a crafts or framing store, gather up your favorite prints, then jump right in and get started.
