Well-suited for mass production, this polished-looking card, from the Poel family of Grand Rapids, Michigan, was inspired by a card-making course.

What you'll need

  • Family photo
  • Copy service
  • 8 1/2 by 11-inch sheet of card stock
  • Decorative scissors
  • Tacky glue
  • Acetate
  • Scissors
  • "Anywhere" hole puncher
  • Eyelet setter and eyelets
Helpful Tip:

Have the copy shop use a color copier to simultaneously reduce the photo to the proper size and reproduce multiple copies on one page.

How to make it

  1. Take a family photo to a copy shop to have it shrunk to 1 1/4 by 2 inches and copied seven to a page.

  2. Cut an 8 1/2 by 11-inch sheet of card stock in half, then fold each piece in half to make two cards.

  3. Cut out each picture with decorative scissors for a postage-stamp effect, tacky-glue it to a piece of card stock cut to fit, then glue the picture to the front of the card.

  4. Cut a piece of acetate to fit, cut holes through the acetate and the card with an "anywhere" hole puncher, and secure the eyelets to the card with an eyelet setter.
