DIY Pet Photo Bag
- camera with filters (black and white)
- photo editing software ( I used Photoshop and Illustrator)
- a canvas bag
- iron on transfer paper
So I was on Zulily and I saw these fun pet photo bags and I said to myself I’ve got to try that. How else am I going to know if my girls can do it later. I broke out my old but still very reliable Canon Rebel T3 and took some black and white shots of our dog Coco.
After I got the shot that I wanted, I opened the photo up in Photoshop so that I could clean up the background. I use the Magic Wand tool and then enlarge the image and use the Eraser to clean up what the wand didn’t catch.
He’s a cute huh? We call him Wilfred Brimley or Diabeetus because of his whiskers. What do you think?
I see it. OK back on post. After I cleaned up the image, I opened it in Illustrator. Here’s where I gave Coco some fun glasses. Of course, I had to use pink. Although he’s not, he should be a girl and lots of girls like pink. I googled pink glasses png images and found some pretty good ones. I really liked the cat eye but I decided to go with the more square frames. Here the images that I found.
Awwww! Too cute!
All you have to do is position the glasses on your four legged friend and you’re done. Save the image and then export it as a JPEG. Print your image, cut it out, and iron it on your bag making sure to follow the instructions.
*The key is to press down firmly and let it cool before pulling off the paper.
Zoila! You have a super cute Pet Photo Bag showing love for man’s best friend.
