Crafting Tip of the Week#165- Help, it's Stuck & it Won't Come Off...

Hello Crafty Friends!

Have you ever encountered a situation where your old photos have gotten stuck to the glass in their frames? 

Ever wonder how you could remove the pictures without harming them?

If so, I have  a tip to help with those stuck on pics. 

Place your frame (s) into a resealable plastic bag making sure to leave the bag unsealed, then place it in the freezer for a day or two.  Doing this dries out the photos' sticky finish, which is the root of the problem. 
Then, for each frame, use the dull edge of a butter knife to carefully pry up one corner of the picture. At this point the photo (s) should peel off the glass. Now if some of the picture still won't budge, take them to the photo store to see if the staff can help with the issue.

If you still can't get the pic unstuck, then get the photo scanned through the glass to create a copy . At least this way you will still have the photo in tact even if it is a copy. The most important thing is that you have the photo. 

I have encountered this problem and the freezing process worked for me. I am not guaranteeing it but it is certainly worth a try. 

Here's to hoping this doesn't happen to you!

Have a great week ahead.
