If you happen to thought I preferred photograph initiatives earlier than I had a child, effectively, consider it or not … I’m EVEN MORE INTO IT NOW. Lol.
I’m working with Canon USA to share this DIY photograph glitter globe challenge. I used the Canon IVY mini printer, which is a small transportable printer you should use to print pictures out of your cellphone (utilizing the Canon mini print app).
I really like this little printer. It’s tremendous straightforward to make use of and the prints are stickers! You may as well use the app so as to add design parts like frames or stickers.
What are glitter globes? Mainly, these are mini snow globes however the glitter and colours I select don’t really feel “wintery,” so I felt they deserved one other identify. You’ll be able to add any pictures to those—I selected black and white pictures of my son.
And these photograph glitter globes are enjoyable to make for your self or as a present for Mom’s Day or Father’s Day (or a vacation).
I’ll share step-by-step pictures of how I made these, however I created this video tutorial too:
You’ll be able to customise these a number of other ways! I made mine colourful by including a drop or two of meals coloring, however you can additionally select to depart the water plain and use completely different coloured glitter for a distinct look.
Step One: Print your pictures. Every photograph globe had a back and front, so it may have two pictures in every (or two of the identical photograph, in the event you wished).
I used the black and white filter within the Canon mini print app to edit among the pictures I had on my cellphone and printed them out on the ZINK paper.
Step Two: Peel and stick the pictures to the inside cardboard (that got here with the globes). Then, use scissors to trim them to suit into the globes.
Step Three: Fill the globes. First, I added the glitter. Then I blended 1/2 to three/4 cup water with one drop of meals coloring and a cap full (in all probability about 1 teaspoon) of glycerin.
The glycerin helps to maintain the glitter from clumping collectively.
These turned out actually cute, IMO. I at the moment have one sitting on my workplace desk proper by my laptop as I kind this. The opposite two are supposed to be presents for my mom and mother-in-law. Thanks for letting me share! xo. Emma
