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.

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.

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.
