Frame Your Photos with a Paper Craft Photo Globe

Extra photos for bloggers: 1, 2, 3

With the holidays sadly behind us, we had to do something tragic last week. We bade farewell to our office Christmas tree.

Packing up all our twinkle lights and decorations, we wondered: Why bother doing away with our DIY Photo Ornaments just because the tree is gone?

We quickly devised a plan to decorate with them, and our crafty pal Emily taught us how to take our method a little further. Of course, we had to share!

Now we’re going to show you how to make beautiful papercraft photo globes that will look great whether they’re hanging in your house, given as a gift, or stranded to spice up your party!

Street Art Photobooths: Make Murals And Friends

Street artists are an elusive group; put a can of paint in their hand, and they’ll mural-ize a wall without making a peep or leaving a trace.

Not so with French photobooth street artist Fabian David.

He ditched the dark alleyways and cleverly misspelled monikers for a more open approach: he decorated the streets of Lyon, France with a live street art photobooth!

Using a digital camera and printer, he captured over 100 lucky people who happened to walk by, from kids to hip French youth and old folks (who we must say have some pretty slick sunglasses).

He promptly printed and slapped their photos onto a brick wall, resulting in an epic get-to-know-your-neighbor photo mural. It’s kind of like a facebook for the town, which = undeniably awesome.

Get your street art vibe on by inviting friends over to make a photobooth collage in your room or organize one with your local cafe. (Bonus: you won’t even have to run from the cops.)

Of course, we couldn’t just make any photo calendar!

We had to make the best photo calendar EVER.

Mykea: Photos + Ikea = Custom Furniture Art

Darn you Ikea:
so easy on the wallet,
so hard on the soul.

Okay, so Ikea haiku may not be the Next Big Thing. But Mykea might be!

This clever collective lets you design custom photo decals (or any artwork) to cover up your bland, standard-issue Swedish furniture.

Upload a photo, use their template to make it fit your Ikea furniture from the Malm to the Billy bookcase and they’ll send you the decals to transform “meh” into “meee-yow!

It’s a radically new way of displaying your photos. Think of all the photographic splendor that has yet to grace your room and/or office — the gorgeous snap from your trip to Maui, the badass pic of you and your BFFs, or the sweet mural you shot the other day.

And as a bonus, there’s no more need to be embarrassed when you watch that scene in Fight Club.

Create the Ultimate Facebook Profile Pic

Last week, Alexandre Oudin elevated the lowly Facebook profile picture to art form.

When we linked to his clever use of the new Facebook profile layout on our Tumblr, it was only minutes before you’d made your own.

And what took precision pixel-pushing 7 days ago (our pal Taylor made a handy Photoshop template if you wanna DIY) is now only 30 seconds of work, thanks to Pic Scatter.

Upload a photo, line it up just right, hit publish, and your fancy Facebook pic is prime for poking.

Holiday Photos: The Top 10 Most-Fun-Ever Ideas

Rounding up your family for holiday-time photos is a feat intended only for the super-human (i.e. Elves at your local mall. They’re little, but mighty).

Obligatory sweaters are the least of it. You’ve been through creepy santas, herds of costumed dogs, and unfortunate awkward poses.

It hasn’t always been pretty, but this year, that’s all going to change!

2010 is THE year for the holiday photo you’ve always dreamed of, whether you’re sending them ‘cross country to friends and family or just want to grab a shot of everyone while they’re all in one spot.

No more awkward blank stares and no more heart-breaking sobbing children. It’s all uphill from here!
