Hi friends! Today we're customizing a regular deck of playing cards with photos from your life! We love sharing our favorite photos in unexpected ways around the house. Next time you have friends over for a game of cards they'll be so impressed with your adorable customized set!
This card set also makes great gifts. Think Mother's Day, Father's Day, Valentine's Day... the possibilities are endless!
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own set of playing cards:
1 deck of cards
52 printed photos (repeat 5 or less photos)
Scrapbook adhesive First, we resized our photos to be 2.5 x 3.5 inches (the same size as our playing cards) and then printed 52 of them with the Canon MG6320 printer. We used the 8.5 x 11 Canon Matte Photo Paper to make the colors really pop. Once they were printed, we trimmed each photo and applied scrapbook adhesive to back side of each playing card. We carefully lined up the back of the playing card with the back of the photo and pressed them together. Then, we took scissors and trimmed the edges and corners of the photo so they were the same exact size as the playing card. Repeat these steps with your photos until all your cards are completed, and then you’re done!
TIP: We'd recommend repeating 5 or less pictures across all the cards, so you aren't giving away your hand! Maybe even fewer if your friends have a crazy memory. :)Thanks so much for joining us for another round of crafting with Canon USA. We're having so much fun printing photos. Please let us know if there are any photo printing projects you'd like to see here in the future! xo. Elsie + Emma
