Photojojo!: Insanely Great Photo Projects and DIY Ideas

Photojojo!: Insanely Great  Photo Projects and DIY Ideas - Amit  Gupta, Kelly Jensen Fun!Ideas:CD jewel case frames. Trace an outline of the paper from the CD insert on cardboard. The cardboard inserts will back the photos and stop them from buckling. Crop your photo to exactly 5 3/8" x 4 5/8" to fit snugly in the back of the jewel case. Use velcro or removable adhesive to attach the jewel case to the wall. Magnetic photo chain.Attach ring connectors ("type a" from www.ballchain.com) to 72 (1.8m) steel ball chain -- they used 2 36" lengths. Hammer a nail in the wall where you want to hang your photo chain. Use the ring connector to hang the chain on the nail and mark where the end of the chain hits the wall. Put another nail at that mark, and hook the end ring connector over that nail. This will keep your photo rope from moving around too much when you change up your photos. Pick out 10 photos and hold them in from the chain and attach them with the magnets (10 neodymium magnets -- online and at some craft stores. Tiny and super strong.) This can also be done as a clothesline with twine and clothespins or binder clips. Turn anything into a photo stand (tealights, forks).Fold the empty tealight in half into a half-moon shape. Insert photo. Bend back the middle 2 prongs of a fork with needle-nose pliers. Curl the outer prongs forward. Adjust if it wobbles, or if the photo falls off. Smooth down any sharp edges you produced when you used the pliers with a file. Magnetic photo frames.Magnetic sheets (available at craft stores or magnetsource.com), covered with wood-grain shelf paper (example, in the shape of a wall-plaque, could be any shape wanted) or other paper, then place photo on top. Photo decals8.5x11 water-slide temporary tattoo paper, available at decalpaper.com. The decal paper runs about $4 a sheet. Photo cupcakesicingimages.com Photo icing arrives in a few days. Put frosting on before applying the photo icing. Make sure the frosting has completely cooled. Take the icing sheets out of their bag and let them air out at room temperature for a half hour. Check manufacturer's instructions as well. Spread the frosting as flat as possible. Apply the photo icing while the frosting is still moist. Let your cupcakes sit for a while so the photo and the frosting will meld into each other. Shake up your shooting -- get yourself out of a rut. Photo safari -- shoot "orange" or "shiny" or any random adjective. You can use a random word generator if you want to be really random. String monopod. String length for your height -- from eye level to the ground.Tie one end of the string through the hole of the eyebolt (8 1/4", 6mm -- buy at hardware store)Tie the other end through the hole in the washer, 1", 2.5 cm or wider.Screw the eyebolt into the tripod mount on your camera. Step on the washer and raise the camera to your eye so the string is taut. The tension of the string will help keep your camera still. When you're not using the monopod, wrap the string around the washer and throw it in your camera bag.
