Feeling nostalgic this time of year? Instantly print your memories with the Instax Square camera or Instax Share printer. I’ve got a full review plus a fun and simple do-it-yourself holiday garland for your photos.
PLUS, I’ve teamed-up to give this gift set away to one lucky reader!
The holidays are always my favourite time of year to get crafty and it’s also the time of year where I go a little overboard with taking photos of my kids. Whenever December hits, it always amazes me that another year has past and my boys have grown so much. When my Instax Square and Instax Share showed up in the mail this week, I couldn’t wait to try them out! I rarely develop photos anymore because it feels like too much work sometimes although it’s something that I wish I made time for. This FujiFilm camera captures and prints memories in seconds plus it has so many cool features. Being an Instagrammer, I love that photos are printed in a square shape!
Before I tell you about my little craft, I want to tell you about this camera! I’ve never used one before and I had it up and shooting in no time at all. The best part about this camera is that you don’t have to print every photo you take. The internal memory saves your photos and lets you print them right away or at a later time. After our little impromptu Christmas photoshoot in the woods by our home, I came home and sifted through all of my shots on the digital screen. You can brighten and crop pictures plus add different filters and vignettes. When you’re ready, you just press print and out pops your photo!
The Instax SHARE is a printer that connects through wireless internet to the Instax Share app on your Smart Phone. You can print any photo from your phone or from your Instagram or Facebook accounts. You can also edit, crop, add filters and even text templates likes I did the “Merry Christmas” photo below. This is a really great gift option for someone who loves taking photos on their phones. FujiFilm refills come in packs of ten so take some funny shots and add them to your holiday cards.
DIY Holiday Garland
This was so simple to make! I played around with a few different filters before printing my photos and came up with a fun array of photos. The black and white option allows you to make one colour stand out! I chose red to make our santa hats POP! Martini and Immerse are my other favourite filters to use. I picked up some red rope and these sets of Christmas clothes pins from the Dollarama for just a few dollars. This garland can be hung in from your fireplace mantel, on the fridge, on the wall, anywhere! I’ll be making one for every season this year.
