Looking for a unique but personal handmade Mothers Day Gift that you probably already have all the materials for? Thanks to the folks at Myprintly.com you can make a number of adorable photo and collage gifts for mom or grads. If you have a printer, a computer and paper you are in business to make these easy handmade gifts. For mothers day we are making a cute photo collage pot and for mom, the grad or teen in your life we are making a photo collage tray or jewelry holder.
Be sure to log into MyPrintly.com and download the app to create a bunch of amazing gift ideas from cards to photo collages you can frame or create these fun handmade gift ideas.
Open the app and decide what project you are interested in making, then pick your background theme and colors.
Add your photos and text into the photo collage.
You can add borders, change tint of the photos. We chose to make the pictures black and white and instead of changing it on our photo application we let myprintly.com do it for us.
Measure the height of the pot, either terra cotta or plastic. (if it has a lip measure from the bottom of the lip) Print out the closest size, we used 4 x 6 photo collages for our pot.
Using Modge Podge, glue the photo collage onto the pot. Be sure to add a layer both under and on top of the photo. You can also spray a clear acrylic paint to seal this.
I added some extra paint polka dots but you can adorn it any way you choose. Just add dirt and some flowers and you have a Mothers Day Flower pot she will treasure for years to come.
For the graduate or teen girl, we thought these personalized jewelry trays would be a hit. Be sure you ask your daughter first for pictures she approves of. (trust me on this one)
Paint or spray paint the unfinished tray in a desired color. Allow to dry completely.
Create a photo collage on MyPrintly.com. Once again measuring the interior of the frame for size reference. Print.
Mode Podge the photo inside the tray and let try completely.
What a cute addition to a dresser or bed side table.
Photo collage gifts could not be easier and the options endless with MyPrintly.com.
