Incorporating photos into crafts is the ultimate way to personalise a project. If you are like me and enjoy taking pictures, you probably have boxes of photos gathering dust in a wardrobe that could be put to good use. If you have digital photos on a memory card, smartphone, or computer, you can print them out yourself or have them printed fairly inexpensively at places like Officeworks or Big W.
Photo crafts make extremely good gifts because they are so personal. Consider these ideas:
Scrapbook—Making a scrapbook is an excellent way to preserve memories. Set your creativity loose and use papers, ribbons, stickers, and other embellishments to decorate your pages.
Collage board—Create a unique wall hanging by arranging a collection of your favourite photos in an overlapping pattern and adhering them to wood, canvas, or corkboard.
Photo magnets—Turn your fridge into a photo gallery! With adhesive magnetic sheets, it's easy to create magnets out of photos of any size.
Photo cube—Photo cubes are a fun way to display a bunch of photos in a small area, and they make great conversation pieces. It's best to choose photos that will work well as squares.
Photo coasters—Want a practical way to show off some of your favourite prints? Stick them on coasters and put them out for your next social gathering.
Photo-covered flowerpot—Bring a personal touch to an ordinary flowerpot. You can let the photos speak for themselves or add other details like a meaningful phrase or saying.
