I have 5 brothers and a dad who are all very proud of their heritage.
So I made these block prints of our family crest for them.

I carved the block, printed the image, finished the edges [I couldnt find a nice hand made paper in town] then made the floating frames.

Wow-that is incredibly amazing.  I can't believe you carved that yourself.  I have the shakiest hand ever, so something like this is unimaginable for me..I'm jealous!

So I'm impressed with your seal but.. my question is: how did you make the floating frame? I love them so much but don't want to spend a fortune on them.

I bought two identical frames at the dollar store and pressed the print between the two glass pieces and then adhered them in one frame with a bead of hot glue. I also glued in a ribbon for a hanger on the hallow frames and tacked on a metal frame hook on the solid wood frames.

I couldn't find twelve of the exact same frame so I used two different kinds

I'm very impressed with your carving skills, I'd be too nervous to attempt something like this. Its a brilliant idea for the menfolk in the family. Cheesy

Thanks!

This is the first print I have ever carved.  I've never done block printing before and I was worried I would ruin it haha.
