Instagram Gift Cards

Holiday season might be months away but DIY gift cards are such a great way to share your beautiful Instagram photos with your friends and family that you don’t need to wait for ages to have an excuse to make them. Also, personalised cards are definitely much more exciting than the commercial ones as they are really unique and personal.    Photo by Rachael Creating gift cards is really rewarding and easy. The most important part would be to choose the Instagram photos you would like to use. That’s usually the hardest part. When you choose the pics you can print them in a desirable size on paper or canvas. Then, using cardstock cut out the backing for the card as well as an insert for writing using copy paper. If your photos are printed on canvas you can sew them along the top of the cards using your thread and needle or your sewing machine. If you are using paper photo prints then they can be glued onto bits of cardstock that can be used as the front of the cards. And… that’s it! Now you can sign your cards and send them off to your loved ones (or even keep them as decorations!). You can check out this tutorial for a more detailed step-by-step description of the process. Enjoy making instacards!...

Instagram Photo Phone Cover

Why not personalise your phone with your beautiful Instagram prints?  True, there are loads of gorgeous phone covers available in stores nowadays, but creating  a cover design of your own allows you to show off your photos and make a unique stylish statement. We discovered a great tutorial for making a pretty Instagram mosaic phone cover.  To make it, you just need a clear phone case and some basic Photoshop skills. 1. To create a beautiful mosaic design, you will need to know the measurements of your phone cover. When you find them out create a Photoshop template  of the same size as the cover. 2.  Choose your favourite Instagram photos and arrange them within the template. You can choose how many photos you’d like to have on your cover and play around with their sizes. You can create a new layer for each photo but make sure they fit well within the template. 3. When you’re done, you can copy the bottom template and paste it as a new layer at top. It will create a guideline when you’re cutting out your lovely design. You can also make the bottom template black in order to create a unifying background for your pics. 4. Finally, print your design, cut it out and insert it into a clear phone cover.  Nice and easy.   For a more detailed step-by-step guide on how to create a phone cover design you can refer to the original tutorial....
