Summer is great for practicing photography and taking loads of holiday snaps, but what can we do with all those digital files? Here are some creative ideas for using your photos!

1. Create and send a personalised postcard

2. Create a memory game

Create your own version of a memory card game with your holiday photos. Simply print two copies of a selection of photos, get some friends together and test your (and their!) memory. PhotoBox does packs of 12, 24 or 36 square retro prints – they look cool and you can also write on them!

3. Make stickers

Who doesn’t love stickers?! They are great as labels for notebooks, to seal a birthday gift or create a personalised address label. Try ASDA for simple square photo stickers or MOO for a greater variety of options.

4. Make bookmarks

Perfect for the start of the new school year, a photo can be made into a lovely and unique bookmark – simply print it in a longer format, punch a hole at the top and get some brightly coloured ribbons. They would make great gifts too! You can also order custom made bookmarks from Printed.
