Common project or gift ideas involving photographs of flowers include calendars, canvas prints, large-scale photo prints, photos woven into blankets, and personalized albums. More modern and creative ideas for using photographs of flowers include sleeves for mobile phone cases, jigsaw puzzles, lamp shades, drink coasters and Rubik's Cubes. Magnets, stickers, journal covers and pop-art grid prints are also ways to utilize photographs of flowers.
Homemade greeting cards are a very popular choice for using photographs of flowers. Cards are made either using a single photo or choosing several photos to create a photo mosaic. Photos are attached to cardstock, or printed as full-size cards, and both can be further personalized with design scissors, edging and embellishments.
Photographs of flowers are also used for creating artificial arrangements. Enlarged and close-up photographs are trimmed along the lines of the flowers, then folded, twisted and shaped to mirror the natural petal design of each flower. The photo flower is then locked into place with adhesives, such as tape or craft glue; or fasteners such as staples, paper clips, tacks and two-prong buttons. Floral wire is used to attach stems to each flower, after which they can be arranged in a container of the decorator's choice.
