instagram calling cards

I wanted to share what i’ve done with some of my photos that i have taken thru Instagram.

{you can follow me under kaseybuick}

I love taking photos and i love how in one click on IG…..you can make anything look good…..

even if it’s really not good.

Do you understand ?

With one click…..i can make Living in Kauai look like there are no worries at all because of the rainbow i

just showed off over Hanalei bay but in reality……the house is a disaster…there are 2347293487 loads of laundry

to catch up on and your daughter had to sit on a bench at school during recess because she wasn’t

being nice to someone.

Anyhoo…………

i don’t know if any of you have printed your IG photos but right before Christmas i finally got on the bandwagon

and ordered a bunch to use as cards to gifts…..and i also ordered a sheet load of them to start some sort of

photo gallery wall of our time in Kauai.

{even though we still don’t know what our plan is going to be come this summer….}

I know there are a bunch of companies right now printing IG photos….so i’m sure you could use any of them….

i happened to use Prinstagrm {here}.

I love them…..

The little squares are sized  2.5 x 2.5

and i knew i wanted to make a few calling {business} cards with them because duh….

1.  I don’t have a business

2. You never know when you might need to hand out a calling card

{not to be confused with calling girl……because that is not what i’m advertising…}

unless you need a roadside massage.

check check

Sorry….no roadside massages being given here.

I found really cute washi tape at our ONE AND ONLY CRAFT STORE HERE ON KAUAI

{don’t cry for me Argentina….}

and because i probably could have printed up some cute labels to slap on the backs…..

but i can’t because i have a printer that pretty much prints out dirt…..

and there is no money to invest in a real life can do everything in one sitting printer….

i had to rely on the good ole handwriting by yours truly.

I slapped a few different pieces on the back and then hand wrote out my info.

why does looking at stripes on a computer make my eyes roll back in my head and

instantly bring on a migraine?

Sorry.
IMG_4601the investment was small….

I paid $12 for 48 of these mini squares….

and the shipping is a flat $7 so for me it was more economical to order a bunch of photos at one time.

The washi tape was $4 a roll…..

{i know you can find it for less online…..but my craft store had a great assortment and so i was able to

just pick up a few rolls and save on shipping.

I don’t know who i plan on giving them out to…..

or for what fashion….

but i did decide Fin needed some of his own cards to give out to the girls……

buscard

I mean….really…….the kid is going to be 8 next week and so far he keeps on getting bigger

even though i told him at 5 years old that he was forbidden to have another birthday.

    I LOVE this!!!! I want one, I want one! That head of yours holds so many good ideas I have brain envy. Let’s keep talking about our pretend business….a stack of these would make it feel official even if we never did more than sit at the beach with our ‘Hanalei’ drinks and talk story.

  3. Adorable. I love washi tape on anything.

  4. you are so cute! i love the way you write and think and share. great stuff!!

  5. Great idea. Love the quality of printstagram too. My computer freezes ip when I try to order. I managed it once but that’s it.

  6. Great idea! These would be great in Christmas cards!

  7. Very cute idea!
