Photo Confetti Tutortial

 Here is the Photo-confetti Picture Tutorial (finally!)

What you will need:
144 photos cropped down to 1" x 1"
(I print mine on Epson Premier Art Matte Scrapbook paper)
3/4" circle hole punch
12" x 12" piece of card stock
mini glue dots adhesive
12" x 12" frame
ruler
pencil
art eraser


Start by making a mark at .5 inches then every inch after that at the top of your page.
  Repeat on each edge of your paper.


Using your pencil marks, line up the ruler and mark off a grid.
(You can save a little time and just make tick marks at every inch,
but this may not be as accurate as the grid.)

 (below:  just making tick marks) 

Erase the lines leaving the intersection marks.  This is where you will place your photos.
Now, add your photos using mini glue dots adhesive.  My photos are a collection of photos of my family from my parents childhood to today.  I try to mix up the older photos with the newer ones.  Also, I try to mix up up the photos so there is a portrait next to a group photo...make it visually pleasing.
Another item I added was an identifying tag at the bottom right corner.
Ours says "Earley Family Est. 1959."
Ta-da!! Here is the finished product!
It looks great on a photo stand or hanging on the wall.
I'd love to see your version!

Smiles!!!
