I've hung on to this packaging from a Martha Stewart product for a while -- seemed too cute to throw away. I especially love the little hanger on top. So when I saw the theme at TGIF this week was "school days," I immediately thought to use this as a little picture frame.
I found the photo in my mother's old albums. It is her brother's school photo. If you look closely you can see the date, 1933.
