9  Re: HEEEELLLPP!!! Chocolate Frog Cards!! in Craftalongs by jellybean89 on: September 26, 2016 08:34:16 AM
Hello, fellow faculty members and students... Wink

I've been trying for the last couple of days to make my chocolate frog cards for the Ravenclaw Swap, but somehow my brain doesn't want to cooperate with me as to how to add the photo and info of me to the cards.

Does anyone have a tutorial how to do that pls?

I've only got access to a printer at home, so would have to do that or add my photo after?

Any help is much appreciated!

Thanks in advance.



I'd probably edit one of the chocolate frog templates in Paint.NET (free image editing software for Windows) to remove the white space where the photo goes & add layers for the text and photo, to get something like this:


and then print that out & cut out & glue to cardstock like Abbeeroad said. Smiley
