When was the last time you actually printed pictures? We have our Instagram feeds and Facebook photo albums to hold all our family photos so if you're anything like me, you rarely print photos out any more. I happened to have a stack of photos printed out that I found in a drawer while tidying up my home for the holidays and I wanted to do a project with them. I also had several mason jar lids in my craft room - leftover from a few projects I did this summer - so I decided to put them together to make a neat way to display photos.

      Also a great gift for kids to make for their parents. I have my grandkids every week for an afternoon so I'm always looking for projects they can do - especially in the winter. We could do this! Thanks for sharing.
