3 Completely Custom Birthday Gifts
Looking for the perfect birthday present for a close friend or family member?
Don’t fall into the trap of getting something generic. It only takes a little extra work and a few special photos to create something special. Here are three ideas to try:
- Recreate photos: (This one is especially fun if you have siblings.) Most likely, your giftee has a few favorite photos from childhood. This year, recreate some of their favorite photos. Not only is it fun to relive those memories, but the end result is sure to put a smile on their face.
- Photo coasters: Let them display her favorite photos in a way that’s also functional. All you need are 4_4 white ceramic tiles (found at hardware or craft stores), 4_4 printed photos, Mod Podge, 1-inch foam brush, and self-adhesive felt pads. Apply the Mod Podge over the tile and place the photo on top. Let it dry for at least five minutes. Attach the felt pads to the bottom of each coaster and you’re done! (Let it sit three days before use).
- Photo heart collage: First, pick out a few of your favorite family photos. On a piece of construction paper, arrange the photos into a heart shape. Use an adhesive to glue the photos in place. Finally, make sure to frame it to turn it into a piece of art they will love.
