We take a bunch of photos during the Holidays and this year was no exception! Now that we have a bunch of digital copies of family pictures, I really want to share them with the rest of the family and even around the house. Here are a few fun and free or cheap ways to showcase your Holiday pictures…
1. Photo Books – These are very cute to create and make great coffee table decor and conversation pieces for guests. I made one of these when my son was born and we take it out often and reminisce. Create a photo book from…
Snapfish for 50% off with code YEAREND50 through 1/6. Orders over $40 can be shipped free using coupon code FSJAN40
MyPublisher is offering a free photo book, submit your email address and they will send over a code for a 7.75 x 5.75 hardcover photo book or $20 off of another size.
2. Custom Online Slideshow – You can make a cute and totally free photo slideshow at Smilebox. You can choose from tons of cute themes and designs, add your own photos and videos, add music if you would like and voila! You can then share via email, facebook, iphone, embed to your website, burn it to a DVD and even send it to a digital photo frame. I did one of these as a ‘Thank You’ email for all of the attendees of MJ’s 2nd birthday and it turned out so cute. Make a free photo slideshow at Smilebox.
3. Photo Collage – I created a poster-sized photo collage of a collection of pictures of the kids in 2011 and it came out so cute! I still have it on our wall in the kids’ room. Most photo companies offer collages in various sizes, I made mine at Walmart.com but you can also try Snapfish, Kodak and Shutterfly.
4. Photo Calendar – Create a free custom photo calendar for the new year. My grandmas always makes one and she puts all of the grand kids on their birthday months. They always turn out really nice. Vistaprint has an offer for a free photo calendar, you just pay for shipping so it ends up being a pretty good deal.
