How to Use Printed Photos this Christmas
I love printed photographs and I'm always looking for new places to get quality beautiful prints of my iPhone snaps. I was excited to give Cheerz a try when they kindly offered me the chance to review two of their products. I decided to have my pictures printed in Polaroid format with their original Cheerz box and pick a few favourites to be made into square photo magnets...
The Cheerz website was easy to use and a pleasure to order from. You can upload photos from your dropbox, facebook page, instagram feed or computer. My prints arrived in little sturdy boxes, perfect for presents (just gift wrap and pop into a Christmas stocking). The paper stock is of a lovely glossy thick quality and the photos were printed sharply and true to colour. In fact I think some of my front-facing camera snaps looked even better than they do on screen! So what are some unique ways to use and display your printed photos for Christmas?
PHOTO IN A BAUBLE
Put a teeny print inside a large plastic bauble, add tissue paper, confetti, and hang from the tree! I found the Cheerz photo magnets with their rounded corners worked perfectly for this, and after Christmas they can be taken out and displayed on the fridge all year round!
PHOTO GIFT TAGS
Use a favourite photo of your friend or relative instead of a written gift tag. Everyone will know which present is theirs with a quick glance, plus they get to keep the print as an extra prezzie! Wrap your gifts and pop a Polaroid underneath the ribbon or string. You could even write custom message on the back or underneath the photo.
