Swedish Post: Xmas on Wheels

Pictures to cards.

Published on

Editor's Pick

Akestam Holst has created a websitethat lets you virtually take pictures of live pigs, elves and other little Xmas wonderland elements to turn into real Christmas Cards, for the Swedish post.

The idea rings to life the creations of artist Jenny Nystrom. Nystrom was known as the Mother of Santa Claus since she created the first-ever Christmas cards, which depicted pigs, kids dancing around a tree and Santa bringing gifts.

Now, the Swedish Post is asking you to take pictures of Nystrom-inspired tableaux to turn into real cards to send to friends and family in the mail. After all, there is no Christmas without Christmas cards.

Check out the behind the scenes video to see how they did it.
