Pictures to cards.

Editor's Pick

Akestam Holst has created a websitethat lets you virtually take pictures of live pigs, Santa's elves and other elements of a holiday wonderland to turn into real Christmas cards for the Swedish post.

The idea basically, brings to life the holiday 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 has recreated her tableaux so you can make your own Nystrom-inspired creations virtually, which will be sent as real cards to friends and family in the mail. After all, there is no Christmas without Christmas cards.
