Did last year’s holidays simply sneak up on you when it came to creative gift giving? This year, get a head start on your fall and winter crafting by using scanned family photos. Most likely you are already sitting on a treasure chest of family photos ready to be turned into holiday cards, calendars, wearable art and even some hard-to-believe items.
The key to success in going from photo, to finished project, to fabulous gift this season is what we call “Ready. Set. GIFT!” That means prepping those photos and scanning them for the best results, then finding easy-to-use websites and services that will turn that photo into an amazing gift and then…well, giving that gift and watching the reaction!
The makers of the Flip-Pal® mobile scanner have all the tools ready for your own sprint to the gift-giving finish line—you just need to start now before it is too late!
Make sure to check out our “Ready, Set, Gift!” Pinterest board.

This webinar is one in a series of educational initiatives from Flip-Pal on preserving and protecting those items that are important to your family history. The Flip-Pal mobile scanner provides an easy way to collect a digital copy of the many artifacts from the life of your ancestor. This lecture will cover tips to help you use the digital images created with the Flip-Pal and then share them with friends and family—while including important descriptive data within the file properties.
