Canvas photo prints are incredibly popular right now, and if you're thrifty you can even find some pretty good just-pay-shipping deals for them around the internet. Nonetheless, Amy from Living Up went off in search of a DIY version.  She found a couple of good resources and combined them with a ton of tips from her personal experience to make an excellent tutorial.  Now if you can't decide which photo you should get put onto a canvas, you can print and mount all of them!  (This project would make a fab Mother's Day gift!)  [how to make a photo print canvas]
