How Do You Make a Mother’s Day Collage?

First up, let’s show you exactly how you can make your very own Mother’s Day collage using BeFunky’s Collage Maker. To get started, head to the Collage Maker and follow the simple steps below.

Step 1: Choose Your Collage Layout

Firstly, you’ll want to choose how your collage will be laid out, including how many photos it will hold. To do this, navigate to Layouts in the main menu to the left, then choose a Layout Preset category to view all the collage layouts on offer.

Keep in mind that if you want to leave room for a personalized message, you’ll need to choose a collage layout that contains an extra cell than the number of photos you wish to include.

Step 2: Upload Your Photos

Navigate to Image Manager from the main menu on the left (it’s the first symbol). From here, you can upload your chosen photos from your computer, as well as your BeFunky account, Facebook, or Google Photos.

If you’re looking for a decorative image for your collage, you can also click Search Stock Images to access BeFunky’s library of over a million free-to-use images.

Once you’ve uploaded your images for your collage, they will appear within your Image Manager.

Step 3: Arrange Your Photos In the Collage Cells

To fill the collage with your photos, simply click and drag them into their desired position. Alternatively, you can select the second symbol above your images (in between the cross and trash can symbols) to fill your collage automatically with your images.

If you place an image in the wrong cell, you can simply click and drag a new image into its place instead or click on the image and select Remove Image from the options that appear.

Step 4: Add a Background to Your Message Cell

Remember how we said to choose a layout that allows you to leave a cell blank for your message to mom? For this part, we’re going to add an image to that cell to serve as a background to your message.
