Collage.com Photo Blanket + Giveaway #CollageBlanket


*sponsored

Are you looking for a unique gift idea? Do you want to gift something that will be used often? I have the perfect solution for you: a photo blanket from Collage.com.
 
Collage.com allows you to personalize your blankets in almost any way you wish. First you choose if you want a 50" x 60" or 60" x 80" blanket. Then you choose fleece or velveteen. Once you make this choice you jump into the editing screen. You can pick the number of photos you want on your blanket, the arrangement, the background, the border, you can add text and you can even make the photos into a shape. I decided to make a photo blanket with pictures of my pup. I was seriously tempted to just choose one picture and make a paw print or bone on my blanket like this: 


In the end, I decided that I wanted to maximize the photos of my dog on the blanket. After playing around for about on hour, I decided on three photos and the gradient background with his name at the top. The end result was gorgeous! 


I received the 50" x 60" fleece blanket. I had to place it on the bed in our guestroom in order to take a picture of the entire thing. It is definitely a decent size. I was really impressed with the gorgeous details and how well the photos transferred from a digital upload to the blanket. Here is a close-up of one of the photos:


I thought it was pretty funny that you can see the dog hairs in the print on the top picture. In that picture he is laying on his white "puppy blanket" that seems to trap dog hair. Of course the Collage.com photo blanket has one tough critic that it has to satisfy: Tequila himself. 


He investigated the blanket as soon as it arrived. He not only approves, but he has tried to steal it from me several times now. I *sometimes* share it with him. However, it is my blanket.
 
I do admit that I was a little nervous about it being a fleece blanket. When I hear the word fleece I think of those thick, uncomfortable sweaters. Luckily, this blanket is nothing like that. The blanket is REALLY soft. It feels more like a softer cotton than the fleece I am familiar with. It is a thinner blanket, but it is quite warm. It is perfect for keeping me warm on the couch in our freezing cold Florida house (we keep the air turned down low). 


I was very impressed with the quality of this photo blanket. It would make a fantastic gift. You are going to want to buy one for yourself too while you are at it. Collage.com also mentions that this fleece blanket would make a great wall hanging. I love this idea!
 
Collage.com also carries photo books, calendars, posters, photo pillows, wrapping paper, phone cases, photo beach towels, ornaments, tote bags, shower curtains and more. How cool would that be to deliver your photo gift wrapped in photo wrapping paper with the same picture(s) on it? Follow Collage.com on Facebook for some great deals (including Free Canvas Friday).

One lucky reader will win a personalized 50" x 60" fleece photo blanket of their own design! Ends 3/29 at midnight.

If I won I would use pictures from my brother's wedding to put on this blanket.

If I got one for my Mom, I would put pictures of my family as well as my brothers family. If I made one for my daughter when she heads off to college, I think I would put pictures of her dog and cat and maybe a couple of family pictures.
