Photo Keepsake…

With wedding season in full swing, and my own anniversary approaching, I was inspired to look through my box of “memories” that I have kept. One item in particular that I cherish is a photo garland I made featuring my husband’s and my grandparents. I collected wedding photos, a few candid shots, and even a marriage certificate from 1936. It was a fun project collecting the photos from relatives and hearing of fond memories. I simply glued the photos on vintage colored paper, punched holes at the top, and strung ribbon through – very simple. The garland was hung over the gift table and served as a great conversation piece as well as a trip down memory lane for our families. Overall, it was a special way to honor our grandparents and I’m happy to have as a keepsake!

  2. Great idea. These are wonderful photos. I’m so glad you found them. But I hope you used photo copies or photo-safe adhesive if these are originals. I ended up extracting many damaged photos from my Mom’s albums and, unfortunately, moldy boxes. Ugh. (My Creative Memories Consultant was adamant to use the right products).

    • Thanks Liz, glad you enjoyed. I think this idea could be used for all kinds of parties!
      I definitely made copies of all, my mom has originals under safe guard šŸ™‚
