10 Ideas for Great Gifts Using Your Family Photos by Thomas MacEntee and Flip-Pal's Diane Miller. Friday, November 16.
Once a precious family photo is scanned using the Flip- Pal® mobile scanner, you can do more than just send the image to friends & family and add to your family tree. We will quickly cover how to scan an original, then print for use in gift projects. A few of the ideas we will share using these prints: ornaments, sweat shirts, quilts, wall hangings, holiday decoration and more. This seminar will be packed with ideas and step by step how-to details from these two creative individuals. We’ll also cover how you can use various sites such as Zazzle, Café Press and even superstore sites such as Costco, Walmart, and Walgreens to create calendars and photo books as gifts.
