Instagram: I adore you, but you are an addictive, amusing, beautiful time waster. You inspire and make me smile daily. Indeed I find it hard to live without you. Thank goodness you are only available to me online. I need a screen and the internet to view your pretty pictures...
Not any more! I am holding forty of my favourite ig images in my hand right now. My Instagram feed has been made real. It is as if it has come to life. How? read on and be amazed my friends.
Today I received the cutest box of treats in the post 'La Boite á photos' * The box contained 40 of my selected and especially favourite instagram photos, a cloth drawstring bag of teeny tiny wooden pegs, some washi tape printed with chevrons in a blush pink, 2 envelopes, so you can send a pic to someone special? A card of bakers twines, some photo corner stickers, to frame the pics with if you so desire and some pretty cards. The box itself is perfect for keeping the photos in too!
The hows and the whys: Cheerz
Cheerz is the name of the lovely company that make these photo products. Even the website is adorable, and there is also an app that you can download to your phone (Android or Iphone) to make it easier, you can order your pics from your phone.
The Products: there are so many and they are themed too, So next up are some Valentines and Mothers Day gifts. I am definitely going to send my Mum a box of pictures this year!
There are also magnets, photo albums, collages. photo strips, like the old fashioned photo booths. So many things to choose from. All of this is produced in a modern but quirky way. Love Love Love.
How it works.
You simply use the website or the app on your phone to first select your product. Then you choose the images that you want to use for the product. Next you decide on any extra's ie, plain frames or coloured frames. I chose some multi coloured edges for mine! When you are happy you add your details est voila! Mine arrived much quicker than I expected too. I am a convert. How about you?
The best thing?
The price the photo box I received only cost £20 plus £4 postage (yes twenty! for 40 images and all the bits, and the quality is high) These are perfect prices for special gifts and you know they will be appreciated too. If you have long distance relatives like I do, and struggle to send gifts here is the perfect solution?
Whats was in my box?
Faffing fantastic! This is how I played around with mine, they are all over the house...
I have seen other companies print instagram pics, but I have to say this is one of the best quality and fun product of this type I have seen so far.
I will be ordering the Mothers Day box asap! Isn't this just gorgeous?
PS I was sent this box as a gift, but I still think it is one of the best around. I wouldn't write about it otherwise.
