A photo memory blanket can be a great gift or just a beautiful way to display your favourite photos. Any type of photo can be added to a blanket, so the creative possibilities are endless.

  1. 1

    Choose some photos from your collection to use on your blanket. Digital photos work best, but paper printed photos will work with a scanner.

  2. 2

    Scan your paper photos into your computer with your scanner. Follow the instructions on your scanner to do this.

  3. 3

    Place a sheet of photo transfer paper in your printer's feed tray for each photo you are using on your blanket.

  4. 4

    Print each photo from your computer onto the transfer paper and allow the ink to dry before you remove it from the printer.

  5. 5

    Lay your blanket on a flat surface and place the printed photos on the blanket where you want them to go. Place them printed-side down.

  6. 6

    Smooth over the back of the transfer paper with an iron on medium heat. Press firmly to transfer the photo completely.

  7. 7

    Peel back the transfer paper. Your photo will be permanently printed on your blanket.
