Instagram Stirrers

Summer is on its way and here at Printicular we discovered lovely DIY Instagram stirrers that can add a unique touch to your party or wedding. They are also fun and easy to make. Photo by Ruffledblog For this DIY you’ll need coffee stirrers, 4×6 photo prints or photo paper, glue, scissors and a photo assistant programme like Photoshop. When you choose the pics you’d like to use (e.g. favourite photos with you and your spouse if creating stirrers for your wedding) size the photos down to 1.25×1.25″ using Photoshop. Customise the square to the right of each photo with your text  (e.g. “Share Your Photos on Instagram”). If you are using the stirrers for the wedding you can also add your personal wedding hashtag and your wedding colour scheme. Or you can simply replace the message with another photo. Photo by Ruffledblog After photo-editing is done you can print files as 4×6 photos at home with photo printing paper or using a photo-service at your local store. Printing Instagram is especially easy with Printicular. When you have as many photo prints as you like, cut each rectangle keeping the photo square and the text square connected. Then fold you printed rectangle inward, matching the corners and creating a clean fold. Unfold and add glue to the back of the square. Then place a stirrer in the middle of the square and apply some glue on the other square and press it on top of the stirrer. Make sure glue is adhering and smooth any air bubbles. Give your stirrers a day or two to dry and finally serve to your guests with some delicious cocktails. Photo by...

Cute Polaroid Magnets

Here at Printicular we discovered cure tiny Polaroid magnets that can add some charm to your home. They are also quite easy to make. Photo by Ambrosia Girl To make those magnets you will need cardboard or 2-3 sheets of cardstock for the backing of the magnets, craft knife, a ruler or a metal straight edge, clear packing tape, spray mount,  1 wide adhesive-backed magnet tape, Photoshop (or any other photo editing software), photo paper and printer. First, choose the photos you like and the dimensions of your future magnets. Then, using Photoshop, create a Polaroid frame layer and then place you photos on another layer on top.  When you’re finished with photo arrangement just print them onto photo paper. Spray the cardboard and the back of your sheet of photos with spray mount. Give it a minute to dry before placing the photos on the cardstock. You can laminate the photos by laying down bits of clear packing tape on top of Polaroids.   Photo by Ambrosia Girl Using craft knife trim your photos. Use the ruler/metal straight edge as a guide. Then cut out magnet pieces from the magnet roll. Make sure that each piece is of the same length as your Polaroids. Attach magnets to the back of each Polaroid.
