The holidays may be different this year but they can still be full of at-home creativity and cheer. Here are some of our Studio Services team's favorite festive ways to DIY the holiday season plus all the gear you'll need to perfect your craft.
1. Custom gift tags with the button maker
Make reusable gift name tags that double as a wearable button.
2. Personalized stockings
with the Silhouette Cameo
All you need is a stocking, heat transfer vinyl and the Silhouette Cameo to create your own customized stockings. Create your design in the Silhouette Studio software, cut it out on the Cameo machine and then iron it onto your stocking or other fabric items for extra holiday cheer.
3. Family pictures with the photography kit, optional lights and backdrop
Set up the Cannon EOS Rebel T7i Camera on the included tripod to snap your own family pictures. We recommend using natural light or combining the backdrop kit with any of our various lighting options.
