Last week was one of my “Little People”‘s Birthday, well I guess he is my “Almost Teen” people.  Trying to think of something interesting to give someone that has everything is definitely a struggle. I took his picture in September and decided to take the most handsome one, add words that describe him on the side of picture, blow it up & put it on an art board. I think it turned out perfect.

This is very easy & unique. First download your picture into a Photoshop type program and add several text boxes describing gift recipient (name, grade, age, likes, etc). Take to your local office supply store (I use Staples) & print out picture (on plain paper) to fit art board. Mine didn’t fit exactly so I painted the top & bottom of art board along with sides a dark grey color. Mod Podge the back of picture and apply to board smoothing out air bubbles. Wait until dry then apply another coat of mod podge over picture to protect & finish off. If picture goes over edge, wait until dry & use sandpaper to file off.
I think it turned out perfect. Remember in one of your text boxes to put date of when picture was taken, that way it is a chronicle of a year. It is a great personalized picture for a child’s bedroom.

    This is a great idea to put up in a kids room and change each birthday. So creative.
