I made some simple birth announcements with the photos I had taken from Jacquilyn Avery Photography and I couldn’t be happier with the results!
First, I designed a collage & added some text using Picmonkey.com. Then I printed these off at Costco.
The original plan was just to mail these as is, but I thought I could be a bit more creative!
So, I gathered some paper:
Then I glued the announcements onto the scrapbook paper.
I wanted a border of scrapbook paper on the top and the bottom of each picture. This left a little bit of extra paper on each sheet. I cut this extra paper in half and centered it over the middle of the picture. Then I folded the sides over to the backside.
I had these envelopes on hand from other cards I made- they are super cheap at Wal-Mart and come in white and cream. These announcements fit perfectly inside them!
And there you have it!
