Hello everyone, Martha Lucia here to share with you a non traditional album that I prepared using decorated papers and my Canon PIXMA TS 9020 printer. To create this project I used a tube box that I have from a perfume but you can also use a toilet paper tube. Take a look of my surprise album:
Creating the box is very simple, I just covered the tube with Serenade 100 decorated paper from Quick Quotes and decorated the top with some paper flowers. I just take the measurements for the base and the top and cut two different pieces to can open the box easily.
Then I create the reel of the photos to put inside of the tube. I selected some pictures of my daughter Mariantonia and printed them on my Canon PIXMA TS 9020 using the Canon Image Garden that I have installed on my computer since I have my Canon PIXMA TS 9020 because it offers me many creative and print options. I selected the bordered x4 using 4″x6″ Canon Glossy Paper and Landscape orientation.
When I was satisfied with the photos that I wanted to use I clicked the print option and a new menu appeared on my desktop. I selected my best options and in less than 20 seconds I had my photo printed.
I cut the photo in horizontal line and pasted them in a reel over a piece of Serenade 103 decorated paper. Then I rolled and secured it with a gold metallic miniclip and put the surprise album inside the decorated tube.
I hope this non traditional album inspired you to use different elements and to use all the options that Canon printers offer you!
See you soon!
