CHRISTMAS: How to Transform your Family into Elves with The Little Picture Company
*Advertorial Content
Christmas is coming, which is beyond exciting and a welcome distraction from the world around us at the moment. An excuse to decorate our homes, find thoughtful gifts for loved ones, sing merry songs and generally have lots of fun! The Little Picture Company are the home of meaningful personalised gifts for the whole family, as well as an exciting range of Christmas decorations. They have an array of different personalised Christmas bauble designs to choose from; all of which either make a special gift for loved ones or a bespoke addition to your own Christmas tree.
One of these collections is their fun Elf design, which allows you to transform yourself, family or friends into elves in a matter of clicks. It's surprisingly easy to do, as the hardworking elves at The Little Picture Company will do almost all the work for you. The Elf Collection includes: Funny Elf Photo Mugs, Christmas Sack, Metal Bookmark and Photo Baubles. If you are buying for a family then both the photo mugs and the baubles are also available in family sets of either two, three, four or five. Children and adults alike will have lots of fun being changed into elves and it is the perfect festive activity to do at home during lockdown too. In this blog post I'm going to take you through the steps of how to quite literally transform your family or loved ones into elves with a couple of clicks, so without further ado...
Step One
Take some portrait photos of the people you want to change into elves. This is a really engaging part for children to get involved in too; they'll love taking photos of each other and then choosing their favourite. All you need to make sure is that the photo is:
  • Well lit - day light is the best
  • High resolution - smart phones like the iPhone are perfect or a digital camera
  • The person is looking straight at the camera
  • There is nothing obstructing their face
When your image is made into an elf the vast majority of it is cut off, with just your face left showing, so it is important to ensure it is clear. Your biggest, cheesiest grin is just what is needed here! Once you're happy with your photographs upload them to your computer or tablet.
Step Two
Decide on which product you would like to order from the Elf Collection. As previously mentioned there are baubles, mugs, bookmarks and Christmas sacks to choose from, so make your pick and go to that webpage on your computer, phone or tablet. 
Step Three
Choose your favourite photographs; then upload them to section that says 'Upload Photo' on the product you're ordering from The Little Picture Company Elf Collection. You don't need to worry about cropping your image or editing it; all of the positioning and cropping is done by The Little Picture Company. 
Step Four
Decide on any personalisation you'd like to add to your product of choice, including the names of each Elf and details on the back of some of the items, like the mugs. If you're ordering the family collection of Elf Mugs then you could have your family surname and the year on the back of the mugs or 'Our Family' or 'Merry Christmas'...the options are endless and completely up to you, so get creative. 
Step Five 
Confirm that all of the personalisation details are correct by ticking the box and then add to basket. Once your basket is full of everything you'd like to order from The Little Picture Company checkout, sit back and let the lovely ladies transform your family into elves in time for Christmas. 
It really is that easy and a fun way to get into the festive spirit too. The quality of everything The Little Picture Company creates is always outstanding and they are always open to try and accommodate your customised vision, so don't hesitate to get in contact.
