1. Fold a pretty origami
In the vast world of paper origami, flowers are one of the fundamental shapes. With a variety of forms ranging from simple to highly complex, the choices might be overwhelming. We recommend starting off with the basic “5-petal flower” if you are new to folding as it will serve as a stepping stone to introduce you to more intricate folding techniques. When choosing the type of pattern to use, try going for a subtler pattern, such as polka dots, paired with colours that match your favourite flower. Apart from flowers, cranes, boats and fishes also serve as great projects for beginners to explore!

2. Build a customised scrapbook
A scrapbook is a lovely way to preserve your precious memories creatively. You will surely thank yourself for putting in the effort to collate your memories in one place in the future! Select a theme —for example, best family vacations—and build it up bit by bit. When choosing what to include in your scrapbook, think about what suits the chosen theme. For example, you can cut out heart shapes from the patterned paper to frame family shots, include the flight ticket for each destination or even glue a small souvenir for each country you have visited. Remember to also be intentional when selecting the colours; yellow to compliment the more cheerful pictures and red for the more passionate ones!

4. Stylise a book cover
Some books are highly sentimental, especially when they are gifts from your loved ones. Wrap them with a DIY book cover made from printed patterned paper and keep them safe from any form of dirt. Another creative thing you can try put is transform a plain notebook into a beautified one! Simply wrap it with the printed patterned paper and you are good to go. Worried about getting it dirty? Adding a protective layer of cellophane will keep it clean and waterproof.

5. Handmake your photo frames
Add a personal touch to your photos by building them a special “home”. Print out patterns on thicker papers and fold them into frames to hold your memories. You can organise your photos by using different frames for different occasions. For example, match all your beach holiday photos with wave-patterned frames. With this, you will be able to creatively add some personality into your house. Who’s ready to see some cute baby pictures?


The built-in pattern template feature in your Canon PIXMA TS8270 and TS9570 provides you with the perfect canvas to aid your creative pursuits. The mix of patterns and colours creates a wide selection for your choosing, one for every situation. On top of this, the printers give you other opportunities to get creative with!

The start of your crafting adventure is truly at your fingertips!
