Holiday Confession. . . Photo Card Redo

  1. 1. My Holiday Confession Holiday Photo Cards Redo
  2. 2. My Holiday Confession • I have a confession to make. Friends and family…I have been cutting up your holiday photo cards for years. • Don’t get me wrong, I love getting cards from near and far showing me how much the family has grown or trips you have taken but they used to end up in a pile. • I have created something over the past few seasons which I think, although I’m taking a scissor to your work, actually gives your hard work and time the respect it deserves.
  3. 3. Holiday Photo Card Collage You will need: -Your holiday photo cards -Piece of foam board (I used 11” x 14”) -Fabric scrap – enough to wrap around board -Scissors, glue, quilters t pins or straight pins
  4. 4. Supplies
  5. 5. Supplies • Your Holiday Photo Cards
  6. 6. How to do: Step 1 • Cut out your fabric and wrap your piece of foam board. Similar to wrapping a gift – which this time of year you have become a pro at. • Keep fabric tight across front. Glue into place on back.
  7. 7. Photo Card Cut Up • As your mail carrier delivers your daily supply of cards, cut each one out, obviously keeping your loved ones visible. • Just by gluing each of them together, one next to each other you begin to develop a freeform collage. And we always have those friends that send last minute. No problem, just keep adding onto. You don’t need any special backing, by creating a collage the photos become their own surface.
  8. 8. • Once you have compiled all your photos, place on top of your fabric covered foam board and pin the top corners to hold.
  10. 10. • Even though I have cut up your cards, I keep this display out to show to others that come to visit during the holidays and show them how beautiful all these cards truly are. • With the array of home photo editing services, cards are just getting more beautiful year after year and they deserve a honored place in my home. • When the season is over, this collage gets packed away and I get to enjoy them next year while waiting for my new supply!
  11. 11. With just a couple simple supplies, you can create one-of-a-kind cards and gifts for your friends and family. The only limit is your imagination!
