Every year I take dozens of pictures of the kids in our family opening gifts. And every year I'm disappointed in the photos - they're dark, blurry or use lots of flash. While I'm practicing becoming a better photographer in low-light situations, I needed to find a way to showcase all of these not-so-great shots. The pictures aren't perfect, but the expressions in those little faces and the memories are!
The best way to showcase lots of pictures (and make not great ones look better) is to print them out in smaller sizes. I started out by making a grid of circles with my die cutting machine that measured 2".
I left room in the center of the aqua patterned paper so that I could tie twine in the center. I was able to use 7 photos in a small, compact space and still showcase the excitement of opening gifts. I placed the Santa's Workshop stickers on white cardstock, filled the rest of the circles with photos and backed the entire grid on kraft cardstock.
This is a quick and easy way to showcase some of the many photos you're sure to take this Holiday season!
