We may be biased, but one of the best things about using your own photos to create a gift or product, is that it gives us a chance to dive back into photos we may have taken weeks, months or years ago.

There’s nothing we like more than taking the time to scroll through our (sometimes…) carefully organised digital photo albums, and discover hidden gems that we’d completely forgotten about.

Most recently, we scrolled all the way back to our time in Nevada, Utah, the Grand Canyon…and then on to Amsterdam, Portugal, Scotland and finally, New York, to find our perfect shots for this ‘traveller photo cushion’ project.


These photo cushions are a great way to add a splash of colour and interest to an otherwise plain, boring sofa. They are also a great way to show off your travel photos to any visitors you have!

Top tip: Use text boxes (or circles) to add where you visited and the date.

We chose varying sizes of photo cushions, from small to large, and chose bright and dark colours that worked well together.

The best thing about the photo cushions is that you can change them with the seasons – we’re already thinking of which photos we want to use next! 

Where have you travelled to that you’d like to include on a photo cushion? Let us know in the comments below…
