Mothers' Day Gifts- Tubular Frames

Two days of hard work, and our little fingers are numb! We rolled and rolled and rolled many beautiful pieces of origami paper for these picture frames. Carefully laying them out and gluing them down, we ended up with a project that is sure to make all the Mamas' hearts melt right on the spot! Want to try making a Tubular Frame at home? Visit Family Fun for detailed instructions.
