Crafting: All You Need Is Love Photo Collage Print


Last week I went home to visit my Mum and celebrate a very special birthday with her.
I knew I wanted to make her something extra special this year, and as I'm trying to make an effort to print more photographs, this print seemed like the perfect idea.

To make it, I printed out the quote and traced the letters onto a piece of A3 card, then (painstakingly!) used a scalpel to cut them out. Then I printed out photographs of our family, and stuck them behind the letters. It was a slow process but totally worth it I think - now that it's finished and in the frame I'm really happy with it, and more importantly Mum seemed to love it.

I think that this is a really nice idea to create more personalised presents - I loved watching Mum point out different photos and memories. You could even omit the photos and place pretty craft papers, washi tape or even wrapping paper behind the letters - it's a totally customisable idea so you can really make it your own!

  3. This is awesome! You've given me a brilliant idea now - I have some cute fabric and I didn't know what to do with it.
