Project Profile: DIY Photo Tote with Text Overlay

We are surely not the first people to note that catchy phrases on scenic backgrounds are having a moment. And while we like to think we are above such whims of fashion, we have to admit it: we’re into it. Really into it. So into it, in fact, that we’ve perfected our own DIY Collage.com version, using our brand new tote bags and a little ingenuity.

Want to make one (or six) of your own? Here’s how it’s done.

STEP 1: UPLOAD YOUR BACKGROUND IMAGE

Pro tip: for best results, go with a high-quality (large) image. The picture will cover nearly the whole front of your tote, which means you need an image that can be blown up a bit.

STEP 2: EDIT YOUR PHOTO

Use our full suite of Aviary photo editing tools to realize the background of your tote bag dreams. You can crop, brighten, darken, filter, rotate — all the usual photo things (plus stickers).

STEP 3: ADD YOUR TEXT

Using the same photo editing tools, add your text (just choose “text” from the tool bar), and pick your phrase. Once the words are down, you can adjust the size, font, and color. Like it? Then you’re ready for step 4.

STEP 4: PLACE YOUR ORDER
