The most-used app on my phone (not counting ones that came on it) is without question Instagram.
If you haven’t heard of or used this handy photo-taking-and-sharing tool, let me explain briefly. (If you have, skip ahead.) You take snapshots of your everyday life — the latte you had this morning, the band you saw play last night — edit them with a filter and post.
I have photos that I wouldn’t otherwise have and miniscule memories that probably would have passed without notice if I didn’t have this app. And I’ve heard friends, bloggers and the like voice similar feelings. But, now that I have these 720 photos, not exaggerating, what do I do with them?
Here are a few suggestions, whether you prefer to craft or push a button and purchase:
Wall art: This can be done cheaply with thumbtacks and a fairly decent home printer, as you can see from the photo of a wall in my apartment. (Just be sure to organize them on sheets, so you can tack up a page instead of each one.)
It can also be fancy. My sister-in-law printed her favorites, glued them down and had them framed mini-gallery style. (Simplify the process by ordering a poster to frame.)
Magnets: Stickygram will send you a sheet of 9 magnets that you can use to personalize your refrigerator, filing cabinet or locker. You could always print your own and stick it to an adhesive magnetic sheet.
Coasters: It’s perfect because they’re already squares. Buy from Etsy sellers and elsewhere, or DIY by tweaking coaster tutorials like this one. (Use print outs of your snapshots instead of patterned paper.)
Do you have any other ideas on how to display your Instagram photos?
