It’s safe to say that PostalPix has some of the craftiest and coolest customers on Earth. Just a little biased… but can you blame us?!

Tiffany McClure recently tagged us in on a craft she had been working on with her PostalPix prints and we were just floored with her creativity! We quickly emailed her to get the deets on one craft only to find out she had created a few more from our own blog: Washi Tape Clothespins Instagram Display DIYEasy Cork Frame DIY for Instagram Prints.

What are your passions? What inspires you?

  • Photography has been my passion for a LONG time and I’m excited that with this job I can also be a stay-at-home mom! I very much enjoy doing any types of crafts, always looking for new ones to try. People with fresh ideas inspire me! I actually get inspired pretty easy. My husband and I just got married May 4, of this year and are now expecting a little one at the end of February! That’s definitely inspired me and sparked my creativity…already thinking of fun ideas when we find out whether it’s a girl or a boy! We also just moved into an apt. and are working on making it our own, which is another reason I’ve been going on a craft spree!

Please tell us how you first found out about PostalPix?

  • I first found out about PostalPix from a fellow photographer friend who took my engagement, wedding, and now “expecting” photos! She had some cute 4×4 pictures and instragramed “PostalPix”. That was a few months ago, then I posted a picture on instagram and said “I want this printed!” She commented and reminded me of you guys again! So thank you Laura! :) Once I clicked on your link, I saw all kinds of fun projects that I wanted to try on your blog! I decided to print 4 or 5 pictures to see if I liked how they came out…and ended up selecting 65 pictures instead. Oops :) I will definitely will continue using PostalPix for picture prints!! You guys are awesome! :)

DIY Lace Trim Instagram Prints

DIY Lace Trim Instagram Prints 1

We love, love, love a simple project and it really doesn’t get any simpler than this! Inspired by this DIY Fringe Photo Garland by PB teen, we just had to add this fun idea to our own PostalPix prints but with a variety of different trims we could find. It’s the perfect DIY to make to use up those scraps of ribbons, fringes and trims (you know you have a basket full of them from leftover projects!)

Supplies:

  • 4×4 (any size, really) PostalPix Instagram Prints
  • Washi Tape (any color, any design)
  • Lace trim (lots to choose from at Joann’s)
  • Double-sided Adhesive
  • Scissors

Instructions:

  • Gather up all of those leftover lace ribbons, fringes and decorative yarn pieces… whatever you have handy!
  • Lay the Instagram prints on a flat surface so you have a level work area to measure.
  • Measure out the lace trim and mark with a small pen (or just eyeball) where you should cut the trim. PostalPix prints are 4″x4″ and your lace trim should be about the same.
  • Carefully cut the lace trim and clean up any pieces that may fray.
  • Lay the 4″ lace trim toward the bottom of the photo print. Some of it can be on the print itself.
  • Adhere the wash tape to connect the lace trim to the photo print and just fold over any left over pieces or simply cut it off.

That’s it! From here, you can display them as is, but it’s best to have them hanging to show the trim off. This is a great project for the little ones!

Instructions:

  • Take any size embroidery loop you’d like to use. The bigger ones can hold a lot more, but will require more material to cover and decorate.
  • Wrap twine (or yarn or ribbon) around the embroidery hoop to cover it up. You can even omit this step if you want the wood to show.
  • Next gather up your materials to tie onto the dreamcatcher. This is a great opportunity to use all those leftover yarn, ribbon or twine pieces you have lying around for a rainy day.
  • Figure out a good length and cut the pieces out.
  • It’s best to lay out the pieces before tying them, so you know what order you’d like for them to be in.
  • Once you figure that out, tie it onto the dreamcatcher!
  • From here, take clothespins or clips to attach photo prints.

You can fill them up as much or as little as you’d like! Paper feathers were also used in this dreamcatcher from an old gift tag. It’s a great way to recycle past projects and turn them into something new!

What do you do for a living? Where ya from?

  • I’m a home, food, and lifestyle blogger at Love Grows Wild, and I live on a farm with my husband and two boys in Indiana.

What are your passions? What inspires you?

  • I love decorating my home and building things with my own two hands. Furniture makeovers, creating artwork, working with power tools… it’s all such a great creative outlet for me! We’re a young family on a budget, so I love transforming our home with a high-end look for a discount price. I also love cooking and am a huge fan of caramel, mushrooms, coffee, and toffee! My inspiration comes from many places… photography, travel, and some of my role models like Nate Berkus, Martha Stewart, and Sarah Richardson.

Please tell us a little more about your blog! How did you get started?

  • I started my blog after moving out into the middle of nowhere with my farmer husband, as a way to share my ideas with the world. I love creating recipes or tutorials for other people to re-create in their own home and share with their family and friends! It’s my very favorite part of my job. : )
