Tape Them Up

A bit of washi tape and an empty, glassless picture frame come together to make a cool, unexpected Instagram collage.

Transfer to Planters

This fun packing tape image transfer method is perfect for adding your Instagram photos to little flower pots!

Transfer to Planters

Take a laser-printed Instagram photo and firmly cover it with packing tape, leaving a tape border around the edges of the image. Submerge the tape in water for a few minutes. 

Transfer to Planters

Using your fingertips, gently roll the wet paper away from the back of the tape until it feels smooth. The ink will remain on the tape, and the paper will wash away. Let dry completely. When the tape becomes sticky again, just stick your image to the front of your succulent pots!
