Every parent or grandparent carries a brag book of some kind with us wherever we go. We are just too darn proud of our kids after all! But as technology is changing, so are our brag books. Most people these days are quick to whip out their cell phone to show you the latest pictures of their precious children.
But why not WEAR those photos and turn your children's cute pics into a fashion accessory? Memory Maker has found a way to bring your brag book out into the open and onto your jewelry with a collection of stretch photo bracelets, which are guaranteed not to break the bank.
I think the Memory Maker Bracelet is a great idea and was very happy to find that they also offer the EZ Fit photo reduction service so that you can easily shrink your favorite photos down to the appropriate size and then print them off at home. I received the Six Frame Horizontal Photo Stretch Bracelet in Antique Silver to review and thought that the bracelet looked nice.
The six frames were large enough (0.687" x 0.562") to adequately display your photos without looking gaudy. I also liked that the bracelet is offered in three different sizes for differing wrist widths.
It is also super easy to change the photos in the Memory Maker bracelet. Simply use a straightened paper clip to pop out the acetate cover slip which covers all six of your photos. Print six photos at home or order them directly from Memory Maker using the EZ Fit photo system. Slide the new photos in and replace the acetate cover slip and you're ready to go.
I would highly recommend printing your photos on waterproof paper though because the acetate cover slip does not protect your photos from the elements or from water which could become splashed on your bracelet from a number of daily activities. If you are going to use the free EZ Fit photo system, make sure that your photos are no larger than 2 Mb. I tried to shrink down my favorite photos, but unfortunately all of my photos are larger than 2 Mb and I had to resize them first before using the EZ Fit system.
I think this bracelet is great for children who'd love to show off their favorite pictures as well as anyone else looking for an inexpensive way to wear their brag book on their wrist. Because the cost is so low with the Memory Maker bracelets, you could afford to give these out after the birth of a new baby, as stocking stuffers for Christmas etc. Being able to print the pictures directly from your computer means that you have complete control over what pictures you show as well as how often you update your new brag book!
