Although I will admit that Instagram has lessened the amount of pictures I take with my "good" camera, I still can't say anything else bad about it. I have captured some pretty great moment of my kids, that if I being honest probably would not have been captures otherwise. I love all of my pics so much that I made a 2012 book of just Instagram pics through Shutterfly. AND...because I loved how that tuned out SO MUCH... I made another one for 2013.
But because a book just isn't quite enough for this proud mommy I decided to make Instagram bottle cap magnets using my CAMEO. The pictures from Instagram have very low resolution, so anything printed larger than 1" just won't look that great.
Bottle caps are just that...1"!! Perfect for this!!
This project takes a little time, but is super easy and worth it!! I picked a few of my favorite images from my phone and emailed them to myself. There may be another way to do this, but this is how I did it. After emailing them to myself and saving them to my computer I got started.
I made my workspace 8.5"x11" because I would be printing. I clicked on the open folder icon to find my image. Because you are working in Silhouette it will automatically open only Silhouette files. You will need to change that to "All Files"
