It came out kind of cool (if I do say so myself) so here's what I did if you want to have a go. Let me warn you know there now follows a weird mix of metric and imperial measurement - sorry, I am a UK child of the 70's, what can I say!
- A photo of each family member
- Thick 250 micron A4 laminating pouches
- Wrapping paper
- Scissors or a guillotine
- Corner punch (optional)
- Open Picmonkey and select Collage
- Upload two of the photos you want to use
Change the type of collage by clicking the little symbol on the right
Select "Cards" 5x7 and the one with just 2 photos
Rotate the canvas (red arrow) and pull the dividing line to the centre (green arrow)
Then you can just drag and drop your two photos, one in each rectangle. Save and then repeat for the next pair of photos.
I had 4 of each photo printed at a photo place. (I thought it would use too much printer ink at home) They ended up with a white border, not sure why but the photo is 5"x7" so each individual picture is 5"x3.5"
I wondered about doing Domino Cards too but that will only work for 6 people. Unless people doubled up in the photos, humm, maybe next time...
