Brother Scan n Cut: How to use the Photo Scanning Mat

I am interested in genealogy and have a number of old documents such wedding  and death certificates, plus a number of old photos that are rather fragile. But I like to use copies for scrapbooking.  With the Brother Photo Scanning Mat I can make the base for the page without having to handle the documents too much.

You can also scan in things such as woven badges, some of these have interesting shapes that can be used on a scrapbook page, but you don’t want to damage the back by having it stick to your regular mat.

So the Photo Scanning Mat is great for scanning fragile documents but it can also be used to just scan in shapes that are on a delicate background.  Check out the video to see just how handy this mat is.

Please remember that the cover is not removable. Unlike the other Brother Scan in cut mats  where you remove the dust cover,  the cover on the Photo Scanning Mat is there to hold the documents in Place and therefore does not get removed.
