Ask your siblings to photograph themselves holding parts of the message. We wrote a We Love You message. Plan the direction of your photo (horizontal or vertical) beforehand, this saves editing time. Preferably use similar background in all pictures, we used white because that was the only similarity me and my sister abroad could find. If you have younger children you could also make one with children in playground backgrounds.
Depending on your frame size combine the photographs to form one single print. I have used a 4 inch x 6 inch wooden frame. Edit the brightness/contrast of photographs if needed.
Print on a thicker paper or photo paper. Cut to measurement.
Using the washi tape outline the side of the photo frame. You could use the tape on the front of the frame as well. This adds an added element to the otherwise plain frame.
Frame the final photograph collage.
