DIY - Photo Initials

This past Christmas I wanted to remember all the fun we’d had as grandparents during the year, as well as give the kids a present to help them remember all the fun we’d had together.
The project began with making files for each of the grand kids, and with all accounted for within my 2013 file, I opened iPhoto and began to make my way through the entire year, remembering all the fun times we had with them.

Here is the finished product! A collection of photos pasted on an initial of the subject of the photos. Our grandkids loved this!
More finished product. Convert photos to B & W. We printed off multiple copies for material to work with.
Some of the supplies you will need for this project.
This project would work well with old family photos also. Don't forget to make lots of copies before you start cutting!

    Did you then use like mod Podge or something to preserve the photos on the letters?
