Instax photo display for my husband!

When I received the new Heidi Swapp Instax wood blocks recently I knew straight away what I wanted to do with them...create a display for my husband to take to his work. You see my husband works out of town and commutes Monday mornings interstate for his work. I wanted to create a special gift for him to put on his desk and think of us everytime he looks at it!
It was easy to start off my display, I grabbed my FujiFilm Instax Share Sp-1 printer, mobile phone and the Wood Photo blocks. Using the Instax share App on my phone I was able to printer photos directly from my phone to the printer!

I wanted to keep the photo display masculine, no frilly bows, sequins  or pink here so I let the photos and Wood blocks speak for themselves!

Let's take a look at each block. On the Hello Gorgeous Wood Block  I added one of the Puffy Stickers  from the Sticker collection. I then adhered some of the Glitter Stickers from the Instax Glitter sticker set to the photo. To complete I punched a heart from some Yellow pattern paper and slipped it into the slot next to my photo.

On the This Moment block I slipped in two Instax photos of my boys. On the left photo I added that sheer sticker from the Instax Sticker set and glitter star from the Glitter set. On the right photo I trimmed another sticker from Instax Sticker set and used that gold clip to add it to the top of the photo.

The You + Me block holds another single photo this time with the full Instax sticker that covers the front of the photo. I love the subtle pattern that gives a masculine feel to the photo. I used my tiny attacher to staple another sheer sticker to the side of the photo.

To the XOXO block I simply slipped in that White Acetate  breathe word from the Sticker collection available right now at Michaels.

Hiding right at the back of the pack I stacked two of the blocks on top of each other and trimmed down that Decisions Determine Destiny 3x4 card from the Picturesque Core kit. I simply slipped it into the block and added in one of my son's Lego figures just as another reminder of home!

I've packed the pieces in a little box with a photo of how to set the blocks up on his desk. when he arrives at work on Monday and opens his bag there will be a special little surprise waiting for him!
I love that I can give him the Gift Of Memories so easily and simply with these Wood Blocks!

Supplies: Instax Share SP-1 printer; Heidi Swapp Instax Stickers Heidi Swapp Instax Wood Blocks, Heidi Swapp Instax Stickers, Project Life Picturesque Core kit, Puffy Number Stickers, Acetate Words Black and White

What a wonderful idea! And then you can swap the photos/ bits in the blocks around when you get some different snaps! Love how you used the transparency too.....great guy gift. He'll be thrilled! Bit of a hard thing working away like that. Hope he doesn't have to do it too long:):)
