Created one but printing is a little challenging, to get them a 'right' 
size.  But for camera, reading 2x3 wallet size should be ok.

It does support QR codes, but I can't get it to do anything, other than 
to show the QR code in its window.  There is no action to read and save 
the image.  Maybe I should 1st try it with a 'real' qr code on some package.
