Photo-Jojo!: insanely great photo projects and DIY ideas

Got photos, lollipops, and Altoids containers? Yes? Then, Photo Jojo! by Amit Gupta and Kelly Jensen is the book for you. If scrapbooking isn't your thing, but you're looking for creative ways to bring your photos to life, this book provides some great projects and do-it-yourself ideas that will keep you busy for months.

My favorites include the photo mural using your photos and wood-grain contact paper and the many different creations that are possible using photo canvas printer paper. It's only July, but  now is the time to start working on those Christmas gifts for Uncle Larry and your mom - you know your mom just loves photos of you. How about a wallet for Dad made with your beautiful cheesy grin?

Each project comes with easy to understand, step-by-step written instructions, as well as photos of each of the steps in the process. If you're looking for inventive, fun projects that go beyond the book, check out www.photojojo.com. It has additional ideas as well as a store that has fun gadgets to keep the creative juices flowing.
