Quick, Handmade Gift

I made this old-book-turned-picture-frame for a friend of mine who loves homemade gifts and has made a fair share of some for me. My inspiration for this idea came from an old issue of Real Simple. Here are the instructions, straight from the source:


Let a book help you see your world differently. Use an X-Acto knife, or a utility knife and a metal ruler as your guide, to cut a window into an old clothbound book cover to create an unusual picture frame.


This is a book I found for a few dollars at the Goodwill bookstore here in town. I chose the book more for its color than any significance of the book title itself, although that would be fun to play off a fun title with a picture.
