On Earth Day we posted about celebrating outside (it’s Dad’s birthday too) with a little adventure. We love getting outside and exploring parks, rivers, lakes, the ocean, National Parks… you get the idea! It actually sparked a little idea for a fun custom re-usable tote bag and mug I could make online with Snapfish using some photos from many of our adventures.
I love personalized photo gifts. Photos are the perfect (and easiest) way to add personalization to anything! I’ve been shopping at Snapfish for photo products since I used to mail in film to be developed so they are one of the first I look at when wanting a fun photo item. They offered us a code to share with you to get 60% off the Everyday Canvas Totes and Travel Tumbler (use ALLISONEARTH when checking out before it expires on Jun 30th 2017) so I had to get them to try them out.
I went with a photo grid for the tote and it is honestly my new favorite bag. I use it for lunch on the beach, a trip to the store and more all while showing off FUN photos from some of our outdoor adventures. I love that they had this photo grid template because I didn’t want one big photo for this one and this came out perfectly.
For the mug I went with an Instagram layout they had online so I could have 2 different photos depending on which way you looked at it. If I’m leaving anytime in the morning this mug is now with me.
Your kids are never too old to put their photo on products but it does help to get a little creative with the display or layout of the photos. Adding in some favorite artistic shots or nature photos helps break up the people photos a bit. Snapfish even has some non photo templates so if you didn’t want photos at all you can still design your own bag (and at 60% off these things are SO cute). If you want quick easy and on the go use their app for ordering – for more options go with the full website.
I took mine on our last trip to the beach to stow away some snacks, sunscreen and a book for me.
To make one like mine just click “make this product” add all your photos from your computer or social media and then in “Layouts” choose one of the Instagram layouts. This one is great if you don’t have super high resolution versions of your photos too! You can order online through your computer or the app on your phone.
Do you love photos as much as we do?!
