COOPH Christmas Blocks


Here's a rundown on what the COOPH team create:

  1. Photo Wine Glasses  - Add images of pets, friends and family to the base of glasses.
  2. Lens Vase - With an old camera lens, and a few tools, you can create a vase out of a lens to store trinkets or flowers. 
  3. Photo Fan - Print out a favourite photo and with some patience, chopsticks, glue and ruler, you can create a rather pretty fan. 
  4. Photo Ornament - Take some photos, pop them inside a glass container that will look lovely hung on a Christmas tree (the COOPH team use light bulbs, add a ribbon to the jar/light bulb and you have a lovely ornament. 
  5. Picture Puzzles - Photos plus building bricks = fun and quirky ways to share portraits. 
  6. Photo Wreath - Go against tradition and use your photos to make a wreath for your (inside) door.
