3 Creative Mother’s Day Ideas With The Selphy Square QX10 Photo Printer

Every year I try to come up with a sentimental and also functional gift for Mother’s Day. It can be tricky to find the right balance between something that my Mum will use over and over, and something that will also communicate how much I love her and how special she is. Photos are always such a lovely gift, and they continue to surprise and delight for years to come, and so I wanted to build on that idea in a creative way.

This year I spent a lot of time thinking about it and came up with the idea of a photo recipe book — a book of Mum’s favourite recipes that she could build on overtime to create a family recipe collection. I wanted to put some photos of the family and recipes in there and give her way to continue adding new recipes with photos. However, I worried that it might be a bit tricky or complicated for her.

Enter the SELPHY Square QX10 Photo Printer, which makes printing your photos at home so easy! There are so many amazing things to love about this little printer. For one it is seriously portable, it fits into the palm of your hand. It’s also incredibly user friendly because it prints directly from your phone or tablet using the free to download SELPHY Photo Layout App. The app enables you to add an abundance of layout options including multiple images into one print, as well as filters, stickers, and frames that you can add before printing.

The prints are also water and dust resistant which is perfect when you have the book open on the kitchen bench. Even better? The prints will last forever! At the end of the printing process, photos are covered by an overcoat finish, giving the photos a glossy appearance and protecting them from water and dirt, while also preventing them from smearing and fading.

Here are three creative ways to use the SELPHY Square QX10 Photo Printer this Mother’s day;

1. Make A Recipe Book


It is so easy to create a custom recipe book, by printing photos of your favourite recipes and sticking them into the book. The photo paper has an adhesive back meaning it’s so easy to customise your own book for your mum. You can even gift your mother a photo printer so she can continue adding to the book!

2. Create Unique Cards

Family photos are the gift that just keeps giving, so why not make cards that are personal and sentimental? It’s easy to make cards using cardboard or even kid's art, and then add printed photos over the top.

3. Do A Wall Hanging



The adhesive backs mean that you can easily fix your photos onto wood or even pieces of cardboard, making them perfect for building a beautiful wall hanging. Go one step further and add photos of the whole family to create a big family tree.

Happy creating!
