How To Cover Everything Ever in Photos!

Created with Sketch.

The Polaroid ZIP Mobile Printer makes super sticky tiny prints of all your best photos.

They’re so sticky in fact, that they can stick to almost anything.

Anything you say?

We couldn’t believe it either, so we took to covering some of our favorite things in our favorite pictures. Ya know, to prove it (not just because we wanted to cover everything in adorable, miniature snapshots).

What You’ll Need

before

  • Your favorite photos selected in your phone
  • A Polaroid ZIP Printer – remember to download the app!
  • Scissors
  • Different objects to cover – we’re using a notebook in our example

Step One: Print those pics!

before

Use the Polaroid ZIP Printer and app to print photos to cover your stuff.

We love flowers, bright colors, patterns and people – but you can print anything you want!

For this notebook, we’re using a collage of some of our favorite photos – junior high style.

Step Two: Cut Those Candids

before

Use scissors to cut out the correct sizes of photos to stick to your objects. It’s helpful to use a pencil too, for planning out those more precise angles.

Make it extra special by cutting out people in your photos, lettering, or individual shapes for extra dimension.

Step Three: Stick ‘Em Up

before

Peel the backing off your photos and stick! Layer photos, tile them, leave some space – get creative!

We covered a few different things besides this expertly decorated notebook and pen.

A Planter – Since our plant is dying, we thought adding some pizzazz to its pot might help to give it new life.

Charging Brick and Cable – You will never again lose yours in a sea of charging cables at the office or airport.

Sunglasses – Because what’s more fun than DIY blocking out the sun?

Taking It Further

  • Draw your own pictures or patterns and snap a photo of those to print for extra-custom projects.
  • Cover your cat in photos and SEND US PICS! (But don’t tell anyone this was our idea).
  • Uses lenses and lighting gadgets from the Photojojo Shop to create higher-quality photos to stick on everything.

I live in Wisconsin and I'm in a band - we're called Seasaw.

You love love, and you love it big time. So, go BIG this Valentine’s Day.

Print up a 3 foot x 4 foot Engineer Print to show your love BIG time.

Read along to see three fun ways to spread the love to friends, crushes and soulmates using photos!

 

1. Mailbox Surprise

gifts
Just fold up your Engineer Print, pop it in an envelope and mail it to your long-distance love.

Parabo Press’s EPs (as the cool kids call ‘em) are printed on extra thin paper, perfect for easy hanging and mailing too!

Yeah, your print will get creases in it, but we just love the idea of your giftee unfolding and unfolding and unfolding to reveal the biggest Valentine they’ve ever received.

 

2. Pin the Heart on the Babe

gifts
We may have spent a bit extra time on this part of the photoshoot in the Photojojo Office … this game is serious fun! Everyone gave it a go.

Print up a photo of your favorite heartthrob, cut out some hearts, procure a blindfold, give the first contestant a good spin, and watch them just try to find their way to that cutie’s heart.

It’s the perfect pastime for a Galentine’s Party or a cozy night in – just you, mood music, a box of chocolates and an EP of Michael B. Jordan.

 

3. Surprise! I love you!

gifts
Engineer Prints (available in color and B&W) are the perfect width to tape in your
standard door.

Tape your face looking into a room with an inward opening door to give your favorite someone a BIG surprise.

Just make sure your intended recipient is in the room when you stick up that print.
