Need a last minute Valentine’s Day gift idea that’s inexpensive and will take less than 15 minutes to make? I have you covered with this fancy heart shaped photo collage.
This is perfect for anyone in your life– just fill the collage with photos the recipient will enjoy. That could be photos of their offspring, you, cheeseburgers, Channing Tatum, puppies, etc. It’s the thought that matters, my friends.
Ahem. Brad, if you’re reading this, act surprised when I hand you this on Saturday.
Okay, so you’re going to have to download this free app called “Art Collage”. I downloaded it onto my iPhone.
Here’s the icon so you know you’re downloading the correct app. Yeah, it’s the one with Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Hilary Duff, and President Obama.
Now, you’re going to click ‘load’ to upload the photos you’d like use.
FYI, they have other templates. I liked this one the best so I went with it.
You can load all 16 photos at once or you can place each photo individually by clicking on the square where you would like to place it.
For this collage, I uploaded the photos in chronological order, starting with the day Owen was born.
When you’re done with your collage, click ‘save’, and save it to your phone’s photo album.
Since this is the free version, it comes with a watermark at the bottom. I got rid of it by opening it in my iPhone, clicking ‘edit’, and cropping out the watermark.
I then sent the photo to my email so I could print it off of my computer (scaled to fit the page). However, my printer decided to be a jerk yesterday, and I didn’t have time to run to a place where I could have it printed. So I had my friend, Erin, Photoshop it into a frame so you could see how it’s supposed to look.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
