Turn a special note into a keepsake. 💕
Photo canvases don’t have to be just for actual photos! Consider having a handwritten message, recipe, quote, or card printed on a photo canvas to display in your home. You can turn any image into a work of art, including handwriting! This could be a wonderful Valentine’s Day idea to consider.
So many possibilities to display a canvas!
You can hang a handwritten photo canvas up on the wall to include as part of a photo gallery or use a photo frame easel to display. There’s nothing more special or personal than a written sentiment, and this is such a fun way to preserve it and make it part of your home decor.
Have a stack of old greeting cards from family?
I recently came across an old card my dad had sent me years ago and thought it’d be a nice message to see every day. He has the most recognizable handwriting in my family and ALWAYS signs cards and messages to me with how proud he is—I love that. ❤️
We are very close so I’m happy to now have this special message on display as a photo canvas in my home!
How do you get the image as a photo to upload for purchase?
I took a well-lit photo of the handwriting on the card using my phone making sure to keep my hand steady! I did some minor edits using Apple’s Photo app to brighten and add contrast to the image.
Then uploaded the photo to canvas printing website and purchased an 8″ x 10″ photo canvas. Easy peasy!
Ideas for mementos you can turn into photo canvases include:
- Old handwritten family recipes.
- Drawings or artwork from your kids.
- A letter or a special handwritten note from a loved one who passed away.
- Handwritten wedding vows.
- Meaningful song lyrics or a poem.
This would make the best gift!
I truly think this would be an amazingly thoughtful gift for Christmas, Father’s Day, Mother’s day, or something special to do for yourself!
It’s a very meaningful way to memorialize the handwriting of someone who has passed. I have been looking for handwritten things from my grandparents and considering getting a few canvases made of recipes for my kitchen.
