Instructions:

  • Decide on what kinds of paper you’d like to use. The selection at local craft stores like Michael’s or Jo-Ann can have quite a selection of paper choices that are 12×12 and perfect for this project. Feel free to swap this out for fabrics, burlap or leftover scraps of paper you may have.
  • For this DIY, the flags are 5″ by 7.5″, but the shape can be anything! Triangles or squares could also work.
  • Carefully cut out the 5″ by 7.5″ rectangles on the paper first. You can mark the measurements with a pencil to be more precise.
  • Place the print towards the top to help figure out where you want to cut the triangle from the bottom. Again, you can eyeball this or measure it with a ruler to be more precise.
  • Tape down the photo with a small pieces of washi tape. You can also adhere it with double-sided tape, use photo corners or even cut a window out on the flag.
  • Use the hold punch and punch out to holes on the top and use a long piece of twine to string through the flags.
  • Hang and admire!

Photo Print Displays from Household Items

Photo Print Displays from Household Items 1

 

Sometimes, the best things to display a PostalPix photo print can be household items you already have! And by best, we mean F R E E and really, that’s the best thing ever. We’ll provide links or information on where to buy them if you don’t, but we hope these can inspire you to find or thrift items similar.

1. Spice rack

First up is this spice rack from the kitchen section at Target. It’s the *perfect* container to hold bulk PostalPix photo prints because it exactly 4″ wide and can hold a lot of prints. Other items similar include old CD racks, planters or even jewelry boxes.

2. Old brush

You’ve probably seen these ideas all over Pinterest because that’s where we got the idea from! If you have access to a local flea market, there’s a good chance you can find one! (Hopefully a clean one, of course.) If not, these Swissco ones run for only a few dollars online and they’re the perfect rustic holders for a print.

3. Berry basket

This lovely idea is from our friends over at A Beautiful Mess in one of our favorite posts, ever. You can easily find ceramic berry baskets at shops like Anthropologie and Crate & Barrel (featured in this photo), but the next time you hit up your local farmer’s market, save those baskets! You never know when they can come in handy to store those PostalPix Instagram prints.

Instructions:

  • Every art canvas is different and not quite a perfect 4″ x 4″, so you will have to trim it. Line up the print to the canvas and trim it as closely as you can to the canvas.
  • With the foam brush, apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to the print and adhere it to the canvas.
  • After a few minutes, apply a thin layer on top of the print itself. Apply a little bit extra on the edges to make sure there’s a good seal between the photo and the canvas.
  • Let dry completely for at least 12 hours.
  • Display your print proudly on the easel!

Instructions:

  • Gather all of your materials from your local supply/craft store like Michael’s.
  • Print out the hashtag labels you’d like to have burned into the wood frame, no more than .52” tall x 1.8” long. Feel free to experiment around with the size of the font depending on what you’d like to write.
  • Cut out the labels and shade the backside with your pencil.
  • Transfer the labels onto the frame by tracing over the letters of the label with your pencil. This will transfer the graphite and make it easier for you to burn the letters into the wood.
  • Wood burn the letters with your tool. Really, you can freehand this whole step if you’d like.
  • Attach the photos to the back of the frame and adhere it with Mod Podge around the edges. Regular glue should suffice, but Mod Podge does a great job of sealing as well.
  • Let everything dry.

Instructions:

  • Purchase your materials and have everything all set to go. Everything was purchased at a Michael’s craft store and Home Depot for the small screw eyes, which are optional.
  • Cut the wooden dowel down to size with the X-Acto (or large knife), about 4.25″ in width just slightly larger than your 4×4 PostalPix photo print. Cut 4 total if you want to make it like a box or 2 if you want to adhere it to only the front.
  • Using a small foam brush, paint the trimmed down pieces of wood using the wood stain. This step is entirely optional as you can leave the natural wood as is, or even paint it with acrylic paint.
  • Let dry for at least 12 hours. The longer the better!
  • Align the print in the middle of two pieces of wood and glue them together.
  • Do the same to the bottom two pieces.
  • Let dry completely. Again, the longer the better.
  • Use small steel screw eyes and screw them into the top on either sides and tie twine to it. You can also use push pins or simply tape/glue the twine to either sides.
  • That’s it! Hang and enjoy.
