We all know how addicting it is to use a Sprocket – but how does one display all those awesome photos? Here’s a super fun idea that is equally as clever. Create an upright photo album! All it takes is a block of wood and a few nails to bring it to life.

What I love most about this idea is you can shuffle and admire your collection without any pages to turn. Think of it as a “living” photo album because it will always change and grow and you have guests and let them take pictures home. Simply replace with new photos!



  1. Lightly sand your wood board, and then paint with your favorite color. Add desired accents.
  2. Let dry.
  3. Line up the Sprocket paper and mark the spacing so you know where to hammer the nails.
  4. Use a pencil or marker to make a dot where the nails will go.
  5. Carefully hammer the nails.
  6. Print out photos to display using your HP Sprocket.
  7. Punch a hole in each photo at the center top and hang photos on the nails.
  8. Display the finished piece on the easel and hang photos.
