Frosty the Snowman.
If you're lucky enough to experience the snow, you can't miss out on building a snowman! This year, spend a little extra time decorating and dressing him with snow-friendly accessories, such as mittens or a fedora. Use your Canon IVY CLIQ or CLIQ+ to take a few close-up shots of your favorite details — his carrot nose, coal eyes or corncob pipe. These photos will look great on the front or inside of your DIY holiday card.
Sparkly Christmas Tree.
Every year, you spend hours making the tree look picture-perfect. You carefully hang the shiny ornaments, string the sparkly lights, place the star, wrap the gifts and arrange them under the tree. When it’s all said and done, each Christmas tree is a personalized holiday masterpiece. Take a picture of the tree in all its glory with your Canon IVY CLIQ or CLIQ+, and then peel and stick it on a holiday card, gift bag or package.
Warm Holiday Cookies.
If you’re baking Santa cookies this year, be sure to snap a picture before he gobbles them all up. Take a selfie with your Canon IVY CLIQ or CLIQ+ while you sample the first batch straight from the oven. The cookies might not last long, but the memories sure will. Print, peel and stick your photo to the note you leave Santa, as a friendly reminder of your face!
Whether you have a peppy pup or a feisty feline, we all love dressing up our pets. Every holiday season is even more fun when the pet costumes come out.

Imagine how delighted your pets will be when you print, peel and stick their photos to your Christmas décor!
