Flip-Pal Mobile Scanner Blog Hop Week #5 - Night Light

Hi Everyone!

Happy Thursday!

I am so excited to be a part of this fabulously fun & creative Flip-Pal Mobile Scanner Blog Hop hosted by the incredibly talented celebrity design expert, author, national TV host, and syndicated columnist, Kathy Peterson.

This is the last week of 5 easy projects that I have made showing how wonderful the Flip-Pal mobile scanner is to use for all of your paper art projects!

In case you are just tuning in, for this fun blog hop, 7 diverse designers made fun and easy projects for you to enjoy.

We all used the Flip-Pal Mobile Scanner to create 5 projects each from images of objects that are normally too large or awkward to scan on a conventional scanner.

Here is a review of what I have made so far...

Today, for week 5, we will make ...

~ Night Lights ~

The first thing I did was to purchase a night light blank from the fabulous SpoonSisters website,

These night lights are wonderful for turning any image printed on paper into a lit up work of art!

Now that I had my night light, I was ready to scan Melanie's Snowman Yarn Painting with my flip-pal mobile scanner .

I cropped the image to a 3x3 in my photo editor, printed it and cut off the white paper border.

Then all I had to do is slip the image into the night light frame and I was done!

Ta Da!

The Flip-Pal mobile scanner makes it so easy to create fun and interesting images from your favorite quilts, dolls, rugs, photos, etc.

Our old folk humans have lots of nightlights here too - that is such an easy and fun project. AND a great way to make use of your sister's great yarn project.
