Are you on Instagram yet? I love it, and I wish more of my friends and family used it, so I could follow their days in photos. It’s the best part of social media in my opinion, photo sharing. The filters are fun to play with too. I had been wanting to print out and frame some of my favorite Instagram pics when I found I printed 12 of my favorite pics, and they arrived in less than a week. After that I was on my way to Michael’s to figure out how I wanted to frame them.  I landed on using a shadow box and photo corners to create my shadow box framed Instagram photos.


  • 11×14 Shadow Box Frame
  • Self Stick Photo Corners – 4 per photo
  • Double Sided Tape
  • (6) Printed 3″x3″ Instagram Photos

It was hard to pick which photos I wanted to use. I planned to take it into my office, so it was a toss up between family and home pics and some cool photos from my work travels. I ended up deciding on the family photos.

I removed the back of the frame and laid out my photos to find the right mix on the front of felt backing. I used double sided tape to stick down the photos first and then added the photo corners. This will keep them secure, but also allow me to remove them and change them to different photos in the future.

Then I put the frame back together. Quick and easy!

Here’s the frame on the top of the armoire in my office. (I dusted after I took the photo – sorry!) The rest of my office is a mess, so I’ll refrain from showing a larger picture until I get it organized a bit more.

      I’m not always great about it either, but I’m trying to get better!
