DIY Burlap Memo Board from Jillianastasia

DIY Burlap Memo Board from Jillianastasia 1

Miss Jillian from Jillianastasia had this DIY burlap memo board up on Craftgawker and we fell in love with it immediately. Easy to make and even easier to change out your Instagram prints from PostalPix. With only a few supplies, you can make your own burlap memo board in no time. You can cut down the fraction of the time and purchase a pre-made burlap canvas. Unless you’re a hard DIYer and love a good challenge, you can always make your own.

Follow along below for a list of the supplies and instructions!

Supplies:

  • PostalPix Instagram Prints
  • 8″ x 8″ Burlap Canvas
  • Nail Heads or Decorative Tacks
  • Twine
  • Mini Clothespins
  • Hammer

Instructions:

  • Prep your burlap canvas and get your tools handy.
  • Measure out a long piece of twine that will cover the width of the burlap canvas, leaving about a half inch of twine that can be tucked behind the canvas.
  • Push the nail head or decorative tack into the twine and canvas to hold it into place. This step may require a hammer if you need it.
  • Bring the twine to the other side and secure it with another nail head or decorative tack.
  • Keep wrapping the twine around the burlap canvas and secure it with more nail heads or decorative tacks until you have even straight lines of twine.
  • Once you get to the end, leave another half inch of twine to tuck behind the frame and out of the way.
  • Hang your PostalPix photo prints with mini clothespins!

Birthday Photo Banner with Instagram Prints

Birthday Photo Banner with Instagram Prints 1

Katya first came across our radar when she tagged PostalPix in the most darling photo of her birthday photo banner with Instagram prints! It was a project she had done for her adorable little one and we’ve been hooked with her photography since. We had to find out more about Katya and what inspires her. Lucky for us, she happily answered a few of our questions and shared some of her beautiful mobile photography with us. We are not joking when we say that PostalPix has some insanely talented customers!

Cardboard Letter Photo Gallery from Tattooed Martha

Cardboard Letter Photo Gallery 1

Our customers are seriously the raddest. This cardboard letter photo gallery DIY from Tattooed Martha is no exception. (And yes, she is as cool as her moniker.) This DIY will be a bit of a doozy, but with a little time and patience, Sasha says it’s well worth it and we so agree. The most difficult thing to purchase are the letters and even that can be readily available in your local craft store or online. Follow below for the rest of the DIY and photos, all courtesy of Tattooed Martha.

Cardboard Letter Photo Gallery 5

Instructions:

  • Tattooed Martha recommends laying out the photos first. She used 7 letters, alternating photo strands of 3 and 5 with back-to-back photo prints that equaled out to be 54 total prints.
  • Mod Podge two photo prints together, back-to-back and sandwich them together with the clear thread running through them. Space each photo about an inch apart. Allow 6-8 inches of extra thread from the top photo and snip off the excess. Lay flat and let dry entirely.
  • Paint your cardboard letters with 3 coats of paint. Allow 30-45 minutes before each coat.
  • Once completely dry, cut a small square in the center of the backside of each letter. This is where the thread will go through, so closer to the bottom the better.
  • Using a safety pin or tack, poke a small hole on the bottom of the letter.
  • Attach the thread with photo prints through the sewing needle and push the needle through the hole at the bottom of the letter. Then through to the back of the small square you cut.
  • Tape the string to the back of the letter.

Fun Confetti Photo Display

Fun Confetti Photo Display 1

 

Nothing screams fun like confetti, which is why this fun confetti photo display from PostalPix is going to knock your socks off! It’s perfect for any event, customizable in so many ways and a kid-friendly project for any afternoon. We think something on a larger scale with fun colors and shapes will only make this photo wall that much better. Although pretty self-explanatory, just follow below to see how we achieved this in less than half an hour.

Supplies:

  • 4×4 PostalPix Instagram Prints
  • Circle Paper Cutter or Scissors
  • Kraft (or any color, really) Paper
  • Adhesive Tape (paint safe)

Fun Confetti Photo Display 3

Instructions:

  • Gather the types of paper you want for your “confetti.” Simple kraft wrapping paper was used here, but we think bright colors and textures would make this project that much better!
  • To save on time, a circle paper is perfect to use to cut out the confetti and the photo prints. Local craft stores or Michael’s and Jo-ann should carry them.
  • Not interested in buying anything more? Simply trace a cup or something round and use your trusty scissors.
  • Each circle is about 3 7/8″ in diameter. Feel free to make them different sizes and shapes too!
  • To adhere, use a paint/wallpaper-safe tape adhesive.
  • Make it fun! Place them sporadically and use up the space that you have.
