I have to admit, I’m not a crafty girl by nature–I’m just not. However, my 10 year old is crafty and I really wish I was so when I was given the chance recently to try out the new Zink Printer from Polaroid I was excited to get started.
One thing that stuck out to me almost immediately is the name and what it stands for–ZINK, which stands for Zero Ink…that’s right, it doesn’t use ink. That means that you don’t have to worry about changing any messy cartridges or running out of ink mid-project.
After setting up the system (I admit, I had some issues but I got it all worked out!) I checked out the library in my app and decided to make flash cards for my 3 year old.
I have been working on letter names and sounds with her and I thought that the ABC Alphabet Animals were super cute and knew that she would love them! Plus they are great for when we are in the car or at swim practice so the learning can continue even when we are out and about!
To make them was really simple. I just went into the Library and under ART I went under the Alphabet Animals and I printed each letter individually.
Because the ZINK printer has a cutter included right in it I was able to cut them apart with just a touch of a button. Once they were all printed I simply peeled the back off of them and stuck them to pink card stock and trimmed them to the correct size. Then I punched a hole in the corner and put it on an O ring so they would all stay together.
Didn’t they turn out cute?
When we are ready to use them we simply flip through the stack and say the letter name and sound–she also likes to name the animal pictured.
And the hAppy doesn’t just have to be used for crafts. hAppy prints can decorate, personalize and customize everything from handmade gifts, wraps & tags, greeting cards & invitations, jewelry, photo projects, address labels, business projects, scrapbooking, home decor, kids stickers & family fun, to name just a few.
My daughter couldn’t wait to check out the Idea Book that came with our shipment, in fact she has put little sticky notes on almost all of the crafts in it!
