Step 1: Upload Your Photo and Add It to Your Page

To begin, upload the photo you want to use for your custom party favor design. Ideally, you should choose a photo without a background. However, if your photo has a background and you have a Canva Pro account, you can remove the background directly in Canva using the Background Remover tool.
