Sorry I've been MIA for the past week. I caught a nasty stomach bug last week and had two different workshops to attend so I've been a little jumbled every since.
But...I've been wanting to blog about this since the second it showed up on my doorstep (two weeks ago) so here I am finally telling you about my new favorite thing.
Instagram has become my most favorite form of social media. Which means a lot, because I'm a pretty big fan of all forms of social media. But
But what's even better than Instagram pictures on your phone - are Instagram pictures, printed and hung in your house!! I know, I know. This isn't a new concept. I've seen things floating around Pinterest forever about printing Instagram pictures, turning them into magnets, blah blah blah.
I just had never taken advantage of it. Until now. And I could not be more in love.
Backstory - Robbie and I got new shutters for Christmas and actually got around to replacing them earlier this summer. We held onto the old shutters because they were just so many re-purpose possibilities. Meet re-purposed shutter number one. I, of course, did not take any pictures of the during process. But all I did was re-paint it lime green and then weave burlap ribbon (found at Michael's) through the rivets. I used teeny tiny clothespins (also found at Michael's or any craft store) to hang the Instagram pictures.
The best part is, that's not even all the pictures I had printed - that's just all that would fit on the shutter.
I used Prinstagram to print my pictures. They're reasonably priced and have a ton of different options. I ordered just the regular squares, which come in sets of 24. They're printed on quality 4 x 4 cardstock paper.
Basically, you choose your size. And then you sign into your Instagram account and choose the pictures you want to print. They took about 5 days to ship, but that was over a weekend. It's that easy! And seriously, they look so good!
I have the ones hanging on my shutter, but I also made a "Instagram garland" hanging from my mantel. I just don't have a picture of that right now. Typical I know.
Long story short, if you need to print your Instagram pictures (and you need to print your Instagram pictures) use Prinstagram.
