Let me just say, I love instant photos. I take my mini Instax camera everywhere when I travel – I’ve taken it to Hawaii, to Seoul, and many other undisclosed locations. My love for instant photos goes back to my childhood when my mom and dad would snap us on vacations. Even though my dad had a camera and occasionally turned our bathroom into a darkroom, it wasn’t easy to do with two little kids running around so instant photos/Polaroids was the way to go. But while my parents shared the photos with family (who else has a million cousins?), I’ve been hoarding my photos in unorganized piles (I hope I’m not the only one who does this). Then, I moved to a studio with walls that were begging for art and off to Pinterest I went.
Since I couldn’t paint the walls, I decided to decorate them with many memories instead. To protect the photos, I got an Instax Mini Frame Set from MochiThings (they have a ton of different accessories for Instax photos, even stickers!). I attached the frames to the wall with glue dots. You can use double stick tape but I found it needed something a little stronger. Display the photos however you like – on a string, close together, even overlap them. I went with rows/columns with about 1″ in between each frame. The end result was a polished presentation, with room to grow (see below).
