Today we have designer Andrea Amu with the Tuesday Tip to create a handmade gift for that special someone….grandmothers, moms,dads, teacher’s aunts, uncles…this is perfect for ANYONE!

Framed subway art! How cool is this. Just create the cuts on your Cricut or diecutting machine and viola! You have the perfect gift for anyone, anytime of year.

And Andrea has some great tips:

1.) Back the cuts in a lighter color so they really pop.

2.) Cuts don’t line up exactly how you want?  Add little embellishments!

3.) AND, of course, a photo! Personalizing it will mean so much.

4.) Add a doily for that soft, feminine touch.

5.) And don’t spend a ton on a frame. Get them on sale at your craft store. You can paint them any color you like!
