The holidays are here, and as much as I love a good photobook or calendar that showcases your best moments from the year, there’s so much more you can do to create personalized gifts that go way beyond the holidays.
Check out this video for a few ideas on projects I made with Mimeo Photos that are a bit non-conventional, but full of inspiration!
Kids Alphabet Book
Make teaching your little ones their ABCs personal and distinctive. Mimeo Photos has soft cover books that you can transform into a customized, educational book that will make remembering the alphabet a one of a kind experience. You can illustrate the book with your own photos that represent every letter of the alphabet.
DIY Portrait Book
Let your kids’ creative juices flow by allowing them to draw and create their own take on your family and friend’s portraits. Using one of Mimeo Photos options for photobooks, you can create a book of portraits with blank pages on the other side. It’s a fun and unique way to hone in on kid’s artistic skills at an early age.
Plus, you’ll be able to look back at it years later and maybe have a good laugh or two!
Bedtime Story Book
I don’t know about you, but there have been many times when my kids requested I make up a bedtime story for them. Why not turn some of your best personal stories and memories (kid-appropriate, of course!) into a square 8x8 photobook that can be passed down through generations. Use your own photos to tell a story that will bring your family closer at bedtime.
Thank You Cards
There’s still something to say about receiving a hand-written thank you card. Why not create your own custom thank you card so you have them on the fly when you need one throughout the year? Not only will a personal message leave an impression on the receiver, but a card that was custom made will add that extra special touch.
Creating a gallery wall with your favorite prints is a simple way to bring style and personality to any room — no painting or wallpapering required. All you need is a hammer, some frame hooks and a collection of your favorite photos.
A great alternative for using prints in your kids’ room is to take twine and some clothing pins to hang on the wall, so you can switch out your photos every couple of months. Mimeo Photos recently launched prints in 21 different sizes, so you can get creative playing with shapes, sizes, and patterns of your prints, too.
Now that you have some fresh ideas on projects you can make with Mimeo Photos, I’m hoping that you’ll share them with us. Please be sure to tag us @mimeophotos on Instagram so we can see what you created. If you have any other creative photo project ideas, drop them in the comments below!
