Be Festive, Be Creative with Canon PIXMA Workshop

Sponsored Event

Be Festive, Be Creative with Canon PIXMA Workshop was my first event after I’m back from my Korea Trip…

So, what is this “Be Festive, Be Creative with Canon PIXMA Workshop” about?
In this workshop we get to learn how to create your own customised greeting cards, origami crafts and more with Canon PIXMA photo printer.
There will be 30 parent-child pairs, where participants will learn how to make festive-related 3D photo frames, party hats, and a generic but very useful wall clock. & Canon have reserved 10 slots for bloggers to join in the fun with the parents and kids!

Thanks & Canon for the invitation!

Popular parenting blogger, Ai Sakura and bubbly host/actress/blogger, Joanne-Marie Sim will be sharing some creative craft tips and they will be doing live demonstrations.

Workshop started off with Giant Scissor, Paper, Stone game with the kids!
 Joanne was demonstrating the game! 

Notes and Materials!
First craft! 3D Photo Frame!
Cutting out the pictures!

All the participants able to print our desired photo from the Canon printers provided at the workshop.
The printer I chose was 
Canon PIXMA MG5370
You can either connect the printer to your PC and print from the PC or you can just plug in your thumb drive onto the USB port on the printer and print instantly! 
That’s what I did at the workshop! 
Choose the photo you want from the screen on the printer and press print!
And Tadahh~  My Photo was printed!
Love the resolution and the color of the printed photo!
With Canon PIXMA Printer at home, you can print your photos whenever you want. 
Don’t have to make a trip down to the photo printing shop to print your photos!
