Today I’m sharing with you a new design, that I’ve dubbed a four-fold photo board! To celebrate the birth of her niece’s baby girl, my mother asked me to create something special and this is what I came up with.
This photo board combines the concepts of a gameboard-like, easy to stow away photo keepsake and an elaborate quadruple layout piece to showcase your photos and memorabilia in one great overview. This could be a great conversation piece at your table 🙂
It’s perfect for housing one year of pictures, for it is aimed at showcasing twelve picture highlights, one for each month. Hence the theme I chose: Baby’s First Year. There is room for some extra photos though.
The four-fold photo board would also be perfect for many other themes! I can picture a family’s history, adding a family tree to one quarter of the board, and using the other three for pictures of your father, your mother and your children (or yourself). Other themes that I could see fitting this design very well: the four seasons, baby-to-bride, puppy to senior dog (or other pet), modelling portfolio, career highlights, holidays, travel, etc. Gosh, so many ideas now I think of it! 🙂
There’s a tutorial waiting for you in my Etsy shop 🙂 . There are also some kits available: Bundle of Joy Boy by Echo Park, which is the boy version of my own project, and Heirloom by Kaisercraft, which has an ancestry theme. You can find them in my Kits section.
Anyway, it was great fun to create this project – I even created two cards from the leftover papers – and I hope you’ll enjoy it too! 🙂
