Help your kids visualize their extended family in a cute and colorful way. Use our tree template to transfer the tree onto a bedroom or playroom wall, and paint. Then use the bird templates to depict the grandparents and successive generations.
A random assortment of family keepsakes, from a grandfather's spectacles to a baby's christening spoon, takes on a cohesive, deliberate look that's almost Victorian when encased in a delicate glass dome. The little tree is a lightweight branch bought from a florist, then spray-painted matte gold and held upright with epoxy.
Perfect for back-to-school show-and-tell, our memorykeeping projects are ideal for completing as a family. Kids can pick and choose the items that are included, while grown-ups can help with tasks such as cutting and printing. So while you may have left the beach behind in August, you can revisit anytime of year.
The switch from film to digital cameras has ushered in a new era of instant gratification: You can snap a picture and email it to 10 friends in a minute or two. But too often, images languish, unseen and sometimes forgotten, in a desktop folder or on a memory card. With online photo-book services, it's easy and fun to give photos a tangible (and well-designed) home. We tried five popular tools and created books that play to the strengths of each one. Whether there's a baby to celebrate or a vacation to remember, these personalized volumes make truly memorable keepsakes. Long-term gratification, indeed.
