Photojojo shows you how to get your phone photos off the screen and into your home with these easy, DIY Instagram magnets.
Craft your own Instagram magnets
You're addicted to shooting photos with your favorite mobile companion, but there's just one problem: Your photos seem to be stuck in your phone.
These services are great for printing Instagrams in a pinch, but it's actually surprisingly easy to make your own at home. And this ain't your mama's project, either -- this DIY will give you glazed, resilient magnets ready for a decades of use. Make an afternoon of it, or like a true photo geek, a Friday night if you feel like staying in.
If you have your settings set to save your Instagrams to your phone every time you upload one, then you can browse your camera roll for your saved 'grams.
Otherwise, if you're using an iPhone, you can download your photos from Instagram itself by tapping on your photo and holding until "Save Image" pops up.
If you're going for a batch of photos, you can download your entire collection using a service like Instarchive.
Size your photos to 2x2 inches at 300dpi in a photo editor like Photoshop or the free and open-source GIMP.
Then, tile those 2x2-inch photos into an 8x10-inch canvas, so they all print out on a single sheet, which can even be done in a word processor like Word or Google Docs, if you choose. This should make for 20 photos to a sheet.
Finally, place your photo paper in your printer, and print.
