Photo Craft Ideas

I love making photo crafts because they are personalized, and I can show off some of the photos I love taking of the kids. I use the HP Sprocket 2 in 1 or my iPhone to take my photos. If you don’t already have one of these, you need to add it to your Christmas gift wish list.

So, what is the HP Sprocket 2-in-1? To put it simply, it’s a pocket-sized printer. About the size of a smartphone, this printer goes anywhere. And, it can easily fit into your bag or backpack, and it’s so light you’ll barely notice it’s there.

Plus, it allows you and your friends to connect and wirelessly print from the printer. And, it provides you with high-quality instant photos (Up to 313 x 400 dpi color resolution). So, you can easily print your photos from social media. Connect your social media accounts to the HP Sprocket App and instantly turn any of those photos into colorful prints.

It includes a built-in 5 MP camera that is equipped with LED dual color flash and allows you to capture and print photos in the moment. And, you can easily customize your photo before printing it. Tap the Edit button to add a filter, frame, sticker, text, emojis, or to crop your image.
