I was trying to come up with something fun to do for the kids with the pictures from our Disney trip and ended up on Shutterfly.com. I was getting prints of pictures and cards to send out, but wanted to do something different with the pictures. I noticed they were having a deal on photo books, so I decided to make a book for each of the kids, but then I had an idea of how to make it more fun.
The idea to make it into a story starring the kids came to mind. So I started working on my daughter’s book. In the story she is a princess visiting the magical land of Disney World and it follows her as she has all these adventures in Disney.
Shutterfly lets you pick different layouts, backgrounds, embellishments, and the number of pictures for each page. It makes it really easy to customize it to the way you would like it and it’s fun to play around with the embellishments. I went with the Frozen theme for her book (of course) and it was a lot of fun to create.
The book is an actual hard cover book, so it looks like a story book we would read before bedtime. There is a picture on both the front and back covers too, making it even more personalized. It was great going through all the trip pictures and reliving our vacation!
Yesterday the book arrived and I am so happy with how it came out, so is my husband. We both contributed to the book and I was happy to see he liked it too. Our daughter is going to love being the star of her own book. Not only that, but the book is set in her favorite place.
I think most photo printing websites offer the option to make photo books, but I used Shutterfly. The website was very user friendly and the book arrived much sooner than expected and in perfect condition. It comes wrapped in plastic inside one of their boxes, so it’s protected from being scratched in transit.
There are always coupons you can use for Shutterfly. A quick google search always turns up some extra savings codes. Every penny counts, right? Especially this time of year!
Thanks for reading!
