Happy Friday fellow fabulous photo friends! (I really tried with that alliteration there, and I SUCCEEDED. This is how you know it’s going to be a GREAT DAY.)
p.s. I wrote this yesterday and posting it today.. so Happy Sexy Saturday my Selfie Slaves? Does that work instead?
Do you have a hundred million photos you don’t know what to do with?
Remember when we used to print things out and like look at them? No, no you don’t? Cool, thanks for making me feel old.
Well, *anyway*, welcome to a whole new world, amigas.
This is the first post in a series of Fun Things Fridays: fun things to do with all your beautiful photos, so they don’t live inside a digital brick (aka your iPhone).
You can only print out so many 4x6s, you know what I mean? So I’m sharing with you all the fun things I do with my photos, hoping you’ll steal my ideas and we will make this world even beautifuler.
Fun Things Friday: Mini Prints http://printstagr.am/miniprints
For my grand opening of my office (it’s been over two years!), I knew I needed to decorate superbly. I got these Mini Prints from Prinstagram, and they were only $19 for 48 of them! They shipped super quickly and were such a fun surprise in the mail .. I love getting mail becaues I always forget I order things and then it's like my birthday! "OOhhh what is this?!" So fun, so fun. I digress.
So, I printed out these adorable Mini Prints. I didn’t know *exactly* what to do with them, but thankfully I had a fabulously creative assistant, Carrie, who thought of this super cute idea. I thought maybe I’d take them down after the grand opening, but it is just too cute! So it's been there for 50 months now. But who's counting!
And then! We had extras. And like your heart can’t be that big. So we bought some string, tiny little clothes pins, and strung them above my mirror. Adds a perfect frame to a bare mirror + all the pictures of my clients getting ready added a really nice touch to my hair and make up station!
Here's what you’ll need to do the same:
Mini clothespins: BAZIC Mini, Natural Clothespins, Wood, 50 Per Pack
Tacks: 1/8 Inch Map Tacks - White
The set up is pretty explanatory, but here are a few tips:
1. Set up the shape you want on the floor first! (Without the Blu-tack, obvi).
2. Make sure you leave extra slack when cutting the string for it to hang down!
I want to see your Mini Print creations! Instagram them using the hasthag #funthingsfridays & tag me so I can check them out! @asiacrosonphotography
There’s a whole world out there for your little photos to explore! Let’s give your photos new life.
They deserve it.
p.s. A whole office tour is coming soon!
p.p.s. My best friend was very concerned he wasn't in these photos. This is proof that he is :)
