Here’s an inexpensive gift you can make for your mom or dad that will really make them smile!

Step 1: Go through your old scrapbooks and find old photos of yourself and your siblings.

Step 2: Use a scanner to make digital copies of the photos or just take pictures of them with your cell phone.

Step 3: Edit the photos in a photo studio program, giving them sepia tones, silly mustaches, frames, captions, or another theme. (I recommend sticking to one theme throughout the production — like just silly mustaches on every page or just frames or just sepia.)

Step 4: Purchase an inexpensive photo booklet with sleeves that are easy to flip through.

Step 5: Put the photo booklet together with occasional famous quotes or written memories on every other page or so.

Step 6: Mail it to Mom or Dad using the postal service.

 

Please note that although my posts only happen once a month most of the year, these posts occur weekly during the holidays, when it’s “Secret Santa” season, so it’s a good idea to bookmark this website for later reference.
