Last summer, my in-laws celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary, and we wanted to make something fun and a little different for them. Here’s what we came up with…I think they liked it! We certainly had a lot of fun making it!
I’m sure you know the concept…as you hold the book in your left hand and flip through with you right, it looks (at least a little) like a movie.
We started by writing each of the letters we would need on 8-1/2” x 11” cardstock, then the hooligans decorated the letters. Then I figured out which letters each kid needed to be photographed holding, to make a pattern. We spelled out Happy 50th Anniversary…original, I know. Then we snapped the photos.
I brightened and sharpened them a bit using Photoshop Elements, then created new images that were 5×7 white backgrounds. I put each letter photo onto the white background, against the right edge and leaving a couple of inches white on the left.
I uploaded all the photos to Costco and printed them in 5×7 format. We used a photo of all three hooligans for the cover.
We also included a 8×10 that I put all the images on, like a contact sheet, just for fun.
These would be fun for any special occasion, or just to send a fun message to someone you love!
