Are you in love with Instagram as much as me? All of life’s little moments captured and cataloged right at your fingertips! But sometimes, certain pictures are meant to be hung on a wall for all the (non-Instagram) world to see. Here’s a super easy way to do that!
While on the Crafty Chica Art Cruise last month, Craft Attitude send a package of their product for each of the cruisers. Craft Attitude is a film where you can use your InkJet printer to print pictures and then use a glue stick to apply to a surface. Image transfer done easy!
Supplies: 4×4″ canvases (they work best for the size), Craft Attitude, Aleene’s® Original Tacky Glue Sticks and Collage Pauge® Instant Decoupage™ if you want to add a top coat.
Size each photo to 4×4″ at 200 dpi (high res). TIP: If your photos have words, or you want them to look EXACTLY like your IG feed, then make sure to flip your image so it prints backwards. Insert a sheet of Craft Attitude in your printer and print. Cut out each picture.
Now you need to coat your canvas with the Aleene’s Tacky Glue Stick. Generously, make sure you cover ever millimeter.
Remove the backing paper from the sheet of film. Place your image face down (ink side down) on the canvas, and then burnish it in using your finger.
Make sure the edges are sealed down. I used a gold leaf pen to trim the edges to make them look more polished. If you want them to be shiny, add a coat of Collage Pauge Glossy and let dry.
These would make great party favors or gifts to give everyone to celebrate a special event! I like that you can find a nine-pack of 4×4 canvases at the craft store for cheap – especially if you use a coupon!
