What do you call dye that uses sunlight to develop photos on fabric? Frakkin’ amazing, that’s what.
You could also call it our Photo Fabric Dye Kit! A kit of red, orange, and blue gives you enough dye to create some serious awesomosity.
It’s a little like making cyanotype sun prints, only in a jillion different colors.
The Photo Fabric Dye Kit
BONUS!: We’ve been playing around with this amazing stuff. Here’s what we learned!
What do moles, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and photos have in common?
Why, they make awesome tunnels, of course!
Yup, photos can make tunnels! By separating the layers of your photos into cut-outs, you can turn your photos into a sweet 3-D diorama.
Use this project as a crafty way to study depth of field or turn your photos into magical miniature worlds.
The last time you tried to reach out and touch a 3-D photo? You got a handful of air. Womp-womp. Here’s the kind of 3-D photo you can really touch!
Gritty cell-phone photos are the new faux-vintage, but we’ve got another way to add filters to just about any photo.
We’ll teach you two ways to add pattern to your pics. A little lace and some sunlight will re-invent your shots with shadows.
…While a scanner and crumpled paper will make people want to reach out and touch your photos (mind the fingerprints on the screen!).
Everyone loves stickers, but if you love film just as much and have a bajillion surfaces that are crying out for some much needed attention, we have an idea for you.
Combine the two loves of your life and make your very own film stickers!
Use these nifty 35mm stickers to decorate your world – everything from your water bottle to your notebook or your computer (just maybe stay away from sticking them on your cat).
So get your camera, expose some slides and make your very own sticky film!
Pumpkins, witches and Wes Craven.
That time of year has come again when the ghouls and ghosts come out to play, but why should they have all the fun?
With the help of the homemade scanner camera, you can set up your own warped and wonderful photo booth.
Celebrate all things spooky by taking eerie and distorted images complete with long exposures, glitches and vignetting! It’ll turn you and your pals into unearthly creatures and make your party the talk of the town.
Give yourself two heads, wiggle your fingers or simply smile. Just hit scan, say cheese and let the freak show commence.
p.s. Rad! There’s an iPhone photography conference called 1197 on Oct. 22nd in SF. We’ll be there demoing some goodies!
What happens when you combine the idea of building blocks with photo prints?
An unconventional way to show off your pictures — that’s what!
Turn your photos into an awesome and interactive tower o’ pictures that flaunts your photo and construction skills!
Leave it unassembled for friends to put together at a party or see how high you can make it tower.
Cuz who says photos can only be in frames or albums?
You’re walking down the beach on a sunny day and spot a sweet shot, but the sun is making it impossible to see anything, including the LCD screen on your camera!
Your sweet shot? Your friend’s head is chopped off, and you’ve focused in on a surly seagull. Not cool.
Fortunately, there’s a smart solution to using live view mode outdoors: a DIY DSLR viewfinder!
This crafty viewfinder is kinda like the DSLR equivalent of an old timey photographer using a cloak with a large format camera.
It shades your screen from the sun, letting you compose your shots 10x more easily. With a little DIY action, you’ll get the shot you meant to get from here on out!
When one of us was a wee youngster, she wrote her initials plus Cody Henderson’s in big hearts on every available surface.
On the walls.
She got in a lot of trouble.
If only she’d known then what she knows now, she’d have made this book instead. A journal with pages made of photos of walls, sidewalks, bathroom mirrors: anything you could write graffiti on in real life.
Note to self: next time.

Why would you settle for photos that just sit there when you can get photos that *spin*?
With a few CD jewel cases, you can make a free and E-Z photo frame carousel, a rad DIY photo project from Tiffany Threadgould’s DIY book, ReMake It.
It’s a frame-holder that fits 10 photos and delightfully spins around a base just like your favorite childhood ride of yore.
Best of all, when one photo starts feeling played out (kinda like your old Eminem CD), you can simply give it a spin for a whole new photo to decorate your desk.
Start digging through your CD bin and give your garbage and/or Garbage another go.
We’ll admit it, we’re obsessed with iPhoneography.
We thought it was about time that we started taking our photos out of our phones and sharing them with the material world.
Today we’re showing you how you can make your own phone photo stickers, magnets, photobooth-style strips, lamps, and more with your iPhone photos using your household inkjet printer!
