    I uploaded this layout a while ago, but I made some “unique” photo corners on it. I cut a regular cardstock mat with a 1/8″ border for each photo, inked the edges, and then instead of just adhering it to the photo, I cut slits in each corner and slipped the corners of the photos through them. I folded the mat corners over and finished them off with a brad :) Easy peasy, but I am kind of proud of them ;-)

    I had read an article in your magazine on this topic and “lifted” one of the ideas featured in it, which showed photo corners made of paper clips and brads. It was the perfect accent to a page I did about the “Tools of My Trade”, detailing what I use in my daily vocation as a proofreader.

    I love the ideas, especially Megan’s ribbon/button corners, but I have to say the photo in idea number one is my favorite part of this post!

    I used DMC floss and a brad to stitch a photo corner.
