You can get all sorts of things made with your Instagram photos plastered all over them but, until I was contacted by the lovely people at Sticky9, I’d not heard of getting Instagram magnets before! The moment I saw them I thought they were a fantastic idea and couldn’t wait to start deciding which photos I was going to use for our set.
There’s a couple of different options when you’re deciding, firstly you can either have 9 different pictures, one on each tile, or you can have one big picture which becomes a sort of magnet jigsaw (great for little ones or just for fun). I went for the 9 separate images as I knew I’d struggle to even cut it down to 9 let alone just one. The sheet of magnets we got were 15x15cm and these sheets cost £9.99, if you want a slightly bigger set you can get them at 21x21cm for £12.99, which I think I’ll get when I order some in the future, just to mix things up a bit. As if those prices weren’t good enough, the site also offers free Worldwide shipping so there’s no naughty few pound extra to add on to your order.
And here’s how they come, all in one sheet – They come in a really slim envelope with no unnecessary packaging which I was very grateful for not to mention you don’t need to worry about whether or not it’ll fit through the letter box. I was a bit concerned about taking them apart (didn’t want to break them) but with a gentle touch and some persuasion they came apart nice and easily! To be honest they feel nice and strong, I just get so paranoid about these things.
As you can see I went, totally, with family. So many of you have Stunning Instagram photos of the most beautiful objects, scenery etc and I wish I had some of those mixed in with my photos too but my Instagram only has beautiful people in it so I made do with that, hehe, I think I’ll cope!
They look rather cool on my Mum’s posh metal fridge, and some pretty flower shots and things would look nice on there too. My Mum isn’t a magnet person so they’ve now gone away so that when we move we can have an awesomely decorated fridge of our own! I think by then I’ll be wanting to buy a second set with some extra pictures of the kids, plus maybe some wedding ones and a couple of pretty flower ones in there to boot!
The good news is is I have been allowed to set up a giveaway for one of you to win a set of these magnets too! It’ll be a 15x15cm set, like mine, and you can pick to either get one big image or 9 little ones! Tonnes of fun to decide and if you don’t have Instagram yet you can always make an account and transfer pics you already have to a mobile device and add them to Instagram that way, it doesn’t need to be new pics you can just add your current favourites to the account!
The giveaway is worldwide but the company has had issues with sending things to Russia so, I’m afraid, they’ve asked that I exclude entries from there (Sorry, it’s absolutely nothing personal, it’s simply that the company just couldn’t get the products to you even if you won!) – If you enter via the rafflecopter widget below, Twitter is the only mandatory entry but there’s plenty of other extra options if you want more chances!
