Have you accumulated family photos throughout this entire year and would love to make good use out of them? If the answer is yes, then it’s your lucky day! Forget the usual way of framing them and putting them up on your hallway!

If you’re looking for something a tad more creative than a classic framed photo, we’ve got the right craft idea for you. (No judgement, though – check out our personalizable framed photos available here). With this cute DIY idea, you will have all your precious photos in one beautiful memory book. It makes the perfect gift for your parents or grandparents! They will surely love it.

By the way you might also be interested in these ideas on turning your Christmas cards into festive wall decor!

What you need:

  • An old journal or photo album
  • Glue and scissors
  • Washi tape
  • Stickers
  • Pens, markers
  • Photo prints

Here’s how it works…

Step #1

Select all of your favorite family photos from this past year. If you already have them printed, that’s great! But if not, you can easily get all of your favorite memories delivered to your doorstep with MyPostcard.

Step #2

Have an overview of every photo you wish to include and start categorising them. Some ideas could be organising them by month, season or important holidays and birthdays!

Step #3

Grab your journal or old photo album and start placing the prints where you envision them. But don’t glue them just yet! Make sure everything fits into each category and there is enough space for everything you want to include or write.

Step #4

Once you have decided where everything should go, start putting the pieces together!

Step #5

This is the most fun part, time to decorate! You can go crazy with the stickers, glitter, washi tape etc. Get creative with it! If you wish to make it more personal, we recommend writing a small paragraph of what the photos represent or some memory from that special day.

Hiya, I’m Maud. I’m an English girl who's moved to Berlin - because who wouldn’t fall in love with a country which has words like ‘Kummerspeck’ hidden around every corner... I love traveling and finding out the quirks of each country - and what better way to remember them than on a postcard?
