Easy DIY Family Proclamation Picture: a super fast beautiful project that costs less than $4! Perfect for wedding and anniversary presents!
When my husband and I got married, his lovely aunt made us a beautiful picture of us with “The Family: A Proclamation to the World” printed on top. I have had so many people compliment it when they come over, that I thought I would make a tutorial on how to make one! It really is super simple and doesn’t require any computer skills except printing!
One of the best parts about this project was that excluding the frame (because the price can vary depending on your frame), this cost me less than $4. The transparent paper was $1.99 from Jo-Ann, and I printed my 8×10 family picture for $1.52 at Costco. So without the frame, less than $4! I got the frame in the picture from Michael’s (they always have coupons and sales for frames!) and I love how it looks in there. Perfect.
Anyway, this also was incredibly easy. The whole thing took me about 5 minutes to put together. All you have to do is trim your paper, print the Proclamation, and then put it all in a frame! Anyone can do it!
So the only two things you need are a piece of transparent paper (usually 12×12″) and then your 8×10″ picture that you are going to use. I recommend using a picture that is up close and darker rather than super light, because otherwise it won’t show up super well underneath the Proclamation paper.
Once you have your materials, cut the transparent paper down to 8×10″. Use a ruler, a pen, and scissors. Not hard.
Once your paper is cut, take it to your printer and print this onto it. It is a PDF file of the Proclamation in an 8×10″ size. To print it, you will have to take all your other printer paper out of your printer and then squeeze the little sides in so the 8×10″ paper fits, otherwise it won’t print in the center.
So now you have a lovely 8×10″ Proclamation printed on your transparent paper, and a 8×10″ family photograph to go behind it!
The next step is super hard. Put them in a frame. Okay, not super hard (or hard at all). But then you are done!
See, I told you that was super simple! This makes a great gift for weddings and anniversaries and is also just a great project for you to make for your own home. Enjoy!
