Christmas Gift Idea - 2015 Calendar with your Photos
My next idea of things to do with your photographs for Christmas is creating a calendar. A perfect way to display some of your favourite photographs over the next year, with the added bonus that you can trim and keep the images afterwards.
I chose to do a month by month design, printed in a square 8" x 8" size and simply held together with a binder clip. This meant that I didn't have to mark the photographs with any holes and it's really easy to swap pages each month.
There are numerous places online or with local printers where you can make your calendar using their design and print it for yourself or for a lovely, personal gift. As I always advise, in my experience you broadly get what you pay for in terms of quality from popular consumer printers.
I used Photoshop to design my calendar and you're welcome to download my template from here - FREE 2015 CALENDAR DOWNLOAD. You'll need to have and be familiar with Photoshop to use it (feel free to contact me if you have any specific questions on how to use it and I'll help as much as I can - it is the season of giving after all!).
I also used my template to create a calendar of my Lego Stormtrooper photos, because this would make an awesome Christmas gift (and there may be 1 or 2 Star Wars fans I know getting one for Christmas...sssshhhhhh!). These are available to buy through my Etsy shop here - LEGO STORMTROOPER CALENDAR. I'm having a sale on my Etsy store on Saturday 6th December in support of Small Business Saturday UK - more details to come soon.
Keep a look out for another photograph related Christmas gift idea coming next week.
