I've made so many less than perfect photo frames.
With no training or background in art or anything remotely related to paper craft, everything I've created so far has been trial and error. The internet helps a whole lot, but still there's only so much help you can get right?
I remember not being too happy with a photo frame I made with blue ribbons. I fortunately have a wonderful family who treasures every piece of below par product I craft. I know this frame is happily sitting somewhere in my mum's house.
