Turn your printed photos into a statement piece with this simple DIY Abstract Photo art made with wood and letter sized photos

Why choose to frame one photo when you can frame ‘em all, right?! More is more, friends. Well, at least, that’s what I was thinking when I assembled this abstract photo art. When I first tried to make it, let’s just say it was a major fail. Turns out there’s an actual technique behind the “abstract” look and I’m here to give you the how-to on making your own.

First you’ll wanna scour your photos and use your PIXMA MG7720 to print a few borderless, letter sized prints and you’re off to the races!

To make the cutting easier, tape down the wrapping paper template with washi tape to hold it in place. Once you’ve cut out each photo shape, you can put them back together on the board.
