Once you have everything ready, you can get started.
Planning comes first - be sure to test the layout before attaching the photos. If you want to add, draw, or stick something to the photos, be sure to leave enough space.
Photos first - the photos are the foundation, always make sure they look good and the embellishments don’t distract from them. Any captions, drawings, or stickers should only make the photos stand out more.
Write - text is the perfect way to recall your memories and thoughts from your time together. It doesn't have to be a novel, even a short caption next to the photo will be appreciated.
Blank spaces can be filled with drawings, a ribbon, or a pressed flower. Or leave them blank. There is beauty in simplicity!
If you want to surprise the lucky recipient even more, use a variety of envelopes, pockets, and other compartments. You can hide small mementos in them or insert a letter, gift card, or anything else to surprise the recipient.
Now, all you have to do is wrap your creation
