photo collage template
Free downloadable 18th birthday photo collage template for PS/PSE.
Paper, pens, glue. A printer. A photo. The internet.
What do all mums want on Mother's Day? Something to keep that freezes time. A photo of the kids and something they've written or drawn - that's all. The stuff they do at school is great, but it is a bit mass produced and you know that all the other mums have got an identical card or egg box daffodil. We've put together 4 ideas for last minute Mother's Day gifts; but just because you don't need weeks of planning doesn't mean they are not thoughtful and personal (or in one case, cheap!).
Download, print, fold, colour. That's it. But write and draw inside to make it extra special.
You will need:
- a heart drawn on a piece of paper, filled with handwritten message from child or drawing (download our template at the end)
- a piece of card (eg cereal packet)
- a photo (or another drawing/message)
- glue & scissors
Fill the heart shape with drawings and messages. Cover the back with glue, stick on card and cut out.
Turn over, cover with glue, stick onto the correct part of the reverse side of your photo (or other drawing/message). Cut out. That's all there is to it. Punch a hole and attach a ribbon to make it hang-uppable.
How are your family's photos organised? Well? Badly? Not at all? Write out a voucher promising to sort out all (or at least some of) your family photos. (Tips for how to get started here.)
Include a voucher from an online printer so the delighted mum can choose her own prints or photo products from the newly sorted digital archive. Snapfish, iPhoto, Photobox - there are lots to choose from, but Snapfish does 'print your own' vouchers so you don't have to wait for delivery.
... or at least include the promise of a family portrait shoot. Beware of booking a shoot without consulting mum - she may have someone in mind already. IF you are heading off to CenterParcs this year, why not book a Pret-A-Portrait family portrait as a mother's day gift - they have opened studios in all of the UK CenterParcs villages so you can have a relaxed shoot as part of your holiday (not sponsored! Just think it's a good idea). Read our 'How to organise a family shoot' post from earlier in the week for tips on how to choose a photographer and questions to ask before you book.
