also here's an idea for a photo frame:
puor a lot of glitter into some PVA glue, get some play clay or doh, make a long snake shape then stick it on a plastic bag in a heart shape, you will now have a heart shape border to pour the PVA inside... dont forget to place an inverted cup in the middle before pouring your mixture.. after the mixture is dry(it might take some time) the glue will dry clear and you'll be left with a wonderful shiny glitter heart... take it off the plastic bag and take the doh away, stick the photo in the empty circle in the middle ( after removing the cup)... this one is from artattack.co.uk. you might wanna take a look at it as i might have forgotten something.

We went out to the local craft store and bought cheep coffee mugs that you can decorate yourself. We had the children finger paint a scene of their grandparents, typed a poem then we put it on the paper that would go inside the clear outer part of the mug. The cost for each mug was 35cents. We has all the art supplies and paper. We did use a good copy paper to finger paint and put the poem on for clarity.
