From baby pictures to vacation pictures, images of family and
friends are treasures that are kept for a lifetime. They make
great gifts and add cheer and warmth to the interiors of our
homes. Below are four fun ways to display your favorite
1. Display photos on a 1"-2" wide ribbon using self-adhesive
Velcro circles or squares:
? Select desired photos and trim if necessary.
? Select ribbon and cut to desired length.
? Place self-adhesive Velcro on the back of the photos.
? Arrange photos on ribbon and be sure to press Velcro firmly
? If desired, decorate open spaces of ribbon with beads,
buttons, glitter, etc.
? Tie a bow at the top of the ribbon.
2. Refrigerator Photo Magnets:
? Select photo and cut out to desired size. You might want to
make a copy of the photo to use in place of the original
? Using photo-safe glue, attach the photo to a piece of medium
to heavy weight cardboard.
? Cut the cardboard to the same size as photo. You can use
regular or decorative edged craft scissors. This is the step
where you can get really creative! Instead of cutting the
cardboard the same size as the photo, leave a border around the
photo and decorate with beads, miniature flowers, etc.
? Using craft glue, attach a magnet to the back of the
cardboard and press firmly in place. Allow glue to dry
3. Photo Collage:
? Purchase a frame and a mat or poster board that will fit
inside the frame.
? Select photos to be used and arrange (overlapping) on the
mat or poster board.
? Using decorative edged craft scissors, trim around photos in
fun designs and shapes, such as hearts or circles.
? Using photo-safe glue, attach photos to mat or poster board
in the desired arrangement.
? Allow glue to dry and place finished collage inside the
4. Photo Standups:
? Select photo and enlarge on a color copier until the person
or image is at least 5 inches tall.
? Using craft glue or a glue stick, attached the copied image
to a piece of heavy card stock or foamboard.
? Carefully cut out around image.
? To display the photo standup - use fun picture clips, attach
a magnet to the back, or purchase (from a craft store) a precut,
slotted strip of wood or plastic to hold photos upright. You can
also make a stand from the heavy card stock or foamboard.
? These photo standups are also great for decorating packages
or using as centerpieces for party decorations.
As you can see, these four inexpensive ways to display your
favorite photos can be a lot of fun to create. Get your children
involved and make some unique gifts to give to your family and
