Turn Your Instagram Photos Into a Book

Last year when I included Blurb's photo books in my gift round-up for guys, it never occurred to me how fun an Instagram Photo Book  would be.  So the other day, when my friend Courtney shared her book (on Instagram of course), it made me take another look at photo books.


The filters available on instagram can give the book a really cool edge.  (Gosh, how many times can I say intagram?)


In addition to those filters, I also like using other apps on my i-phone for photo enhancement.  XnViewPhonto, and Camera+ are just a few of my favorites.

It is hard to believe, but next year our oldest son will be a senior in high school.  I'm thinking about making one of these books for him as a graduation gift - sort of his own personal yearbook.   And, to my design friends, you can also have a portfolio book made.  I think we all need one!

  3. I love these Instagram books too...and my daughter is a senior and I am already pulling photos together for one of her many personalized gifts. The idea that she'll be leaving home makes me very sentimental. I think these are so great for a trip, a weekend or even to document a birthday party.
