GUEST BLOGGER TIPS: Around the room DIY with Snapfish prints

By Hannah from Dainty and Ivory

Photos capture a moment that hold so many feelings and emotions, they can take you back to the place the photo was taken, you can remember the scents, what the weather was like etc. photos make great gifts and combining them with a handmade item makes them a little more meaningful. Snapfish is an online printing service, as well as offering a wide range of photo gifts.

The photo prints service is really easy to use, upload photos, select sizes and opt got a matte or glossy finish.

I had ideas on what I wanted to make so selected personal photos as well as images from the web. I still have a few more ideas for the photos but below are three photo/handmade gift ideas.

As you can see I opted for photos of globes/world maps as well as other things that peaked my interests, I opted for the matte look and overall the quality of the photos is great.

Firstly, using the personal images I decided to make a ‘bunting’ style photo frame (photos clipped onto string, metal etc. of your choosing.) I’ve had these photo squares (can be stall bought or cut out on card) stalled away for ages, so after selecting a few Snapfish prints I cut and glued everything together.

To hang the photos you can use anything from paperclips, pegs etc. You can decorate your photo hanger with items of your choosing, I put flowers at the end of mine.

The next handmade item I made was photo bookmarks, using one of the larger images of a world map.

I really loved how these came out, I measured the length with a ruler so I could get three even sized bookmarks. I then punched a hole into the top and tied red lacy ribbon through it.

Lastly, being a stationery lover I made a notebook. This time I used an image of Marie Antoinette but I could have also used a personal image. Now I made this one by cutting paper and hole-punching through everything but an easy alternative is buying a notebook, removing the cover and replacing it with your chosen photo. Trust me, not having a paper cutter and cutting paper equal with scissors is hard.

Create your own Snapfish prints.
