Instagram is my favorite form of social media. I feel like it really captures the essence of life. That sounds pretty deep for a random Tuesday doesn't it? But, seriously, what I love about instagram is the way it allows me to really capture the every day moments. Those moments are the ones I never want to forget and instagram makes it possible for me to hang on to them. I especially love to print my instagram photos and display them.
Do you have the Printicular app on your phone? (I mentioned the app here a few months ago.) If not, you need to download it like yesterday. It allows you to print your insta-photos directly from your phone to your nearest Walgreens - and your prints are ready for pick up in no time at all! I sound like an infomercial, and I'm not even being paid or perked to sing their praises! I just love them that much. I'm a fan of quick and easy - what can I say?
To display a few of my recent prints, I grabbed a thrift store frame and a couple pieces of scrap wood. I cut the wood pieces down to size and painted them with magnetic primer. Once dry I glued them to the back. I used a few vintage-earrings-turned-magnets I made a while ago to display the photos.
Easiest project ever, and I love the way this special display brightens up the mail center in my kitchen.
