I am a bit of a Pinterest addict and I kept seeing birth detail prints for your little one’s room, all over the site. I would then click on the link and it would take you to some professional website and the cost for a personalised print would be ridiculous. And some weren’t even including a frame! I have said in my ‘All about me’ section that I want to be good at crafts but I’m not very creative, so I thought this computer based ‘craft’, would be nice and simple for me.
So I thought I would have a go at making my own, for Max’s room. I tend to use PhotoBucket or PicMonkey to edit pictures (thought, if I’m honest I do prefer PicMonkey) so I uploaded a blank document from paint to edit with all sorts
of fonts, with all of Max’s deets. He is a boy, obvs, so I used different shades of blue. Plus, his room is duck egg blue & white so I did it to coordinate with that too.
I just printed it out at home and got a lovely white frame for it from Matalan, for a bargain £5 – et voila! Personalised picture for a fraction of the cost. I was pretty pleased with how it came out but you could always print out on card / photo paper for a sharper / glossier finish. It was really simple, easy, quick and fun to do. I think they may feature this Christmas lots of gifts for my nieces and nephews.
If you need help making one, or would like me to make one for you, just get in touch x
