by | May 27, 2021 | Inspiration

Creativity is like a sweet dessert, there’s always room for a little more. The ability to look at things differently from the way we typically look at things and doing something different for the sake of experimenting, discovering, or establishing a new idea is an art that can be handy in making our life even easier.

With more and more creative hacks making their way onto the internet each day, turning ordinary items into something beautiful yet useful is a breeze! 

But what about unique photo goods with a mix of personality and functionality? How can we use them in a creative and unusual way? To find out the answers to the questions and get some 0ut-of-the-box ideas to use photo goods, read on this blog.

Gift Wrap

Want an effortless way to add a thoughtful touch to your gifts without seeming too sappy? Why not pair your gift wrap with photo prints?

 If you were to open your camera gallery right now (or browse through your social media account galleries) you’ll probably find tons of photos. Surely, you’ll also be able to find plenty of photos featuring you and your intended gift receiver. 

Once you’ve found some suitably heartwarming (or just plain funny) photos of you two together, print them out (we recommend using the 5”x5” prints) and use double-sided tape to secure the prints onto the gift wrap.

The prints can be double as a ‘seal’ or ‘indicator’ of who certain presents are for (a great hack during gift-giving holidays like Christmas). Unlike the usual way we use photo prints to decorate our home or as a scrapbooking item, this is an unusual way to use them and capture the heart of the gift receiver’s heart.
