I use my Canon IVY Mini Printer for many different things, from fun little prints of my kiddos to awesome craft projects like this and this. Every mini photo print is a STICKER, that’s right, the backing is super sticky making it fantastic for crafts and just all-around fun. But what if you want to print + save? I’ve rounded up 5 great ways to store these darling little photo prints until you’re ready to stick them on something special!
If you’ve been following the blog for a while, you have probably seen me use these ZINK stickers for quite a few different projects. Like I mentioned above, they are SUPER sticky, ultra-fun to watch print out, and the app makes it really easy to edit your photos before you print. With the Canon Mini Print App you can add your photos from your phone or social media, edit them with filters, add stickers, frames, text, and more. The sticker prints currently come in two sizes; the 2×3″ rectangles and the 1.3″ circle stickers that are two per sheet. But the best part is that these little photo printers require no ink! The “ink” is built inside the ZINK paper!
Small Clear Storage Box With Hinge Lid
Easily see what photo prints are inside these cute little plastic boxes! They have a nice snapping closure and have a sturdy feel. The 3.7″ x 2.5″ size is perfect for the 2×3″ ZINK prints. These are perfect to store and categorize the sticker prints you create for your planner or journal.
$21 for 24 boxes.
Photo Album for 2×3″ Prints, 256 Pockets
If you’re a heavy printer like I am, you’ll love this large photo album that is made for 2×3″ prints! It will hold 256 photos and the overall size is about 8″ square. It comes in four cute colors, here I have the Magic Silver. The way the photos slip into the sleeves from the sides helps them not fall out while you’re flipping through the album.
Unfinished Wooden Box With Locking Clasp
I painted both boxes with acrylic paint and then added an IVY print to the front to store different themed prints; like pretty flower shots and beach pictures.
I’m in love with these little unfinished wooden boxes! They are a nice quality with a sweet little swivel locking clasp. The 6″ x 4″ x 2″ design allows for terrific print storage along with other small mementos like shells and dried flowers. My girls saw these and now they want to make their own!
$20 for 6 boxes.
Metal Hinge Tin Box
These little metal hinge lid boxes are nothing short of adorable, especially with a ZINK print on top! Save rectangle or circle sticker prints with ease and take them with you anywhere. These boxes have a terrific snap closure that is very sturdy, like “won’t open up inside your backpack sturdy” and at 3.7″ x 2.3″ they are the ideal size to store ZINK prints. So grab a couple and throw them in your bag for perfect on-the-go print storage.
$7 for 2 tins.
Pocket Photo Album for 2×3″ Prints
This little holographic pocket photo album is probably my favorite of all of them! It’s made to hold 36 – 2×3″ photo prints and can totally fit in your pocket. The snap is of substance and the reflective qualities are adorable.
So which one is your favorite?
