Make sure you take your Instax camera out on your next adventure with your friends and when it’s time to get gifting you’ll have the perfect picture package to give your BFF. Put your most iconic adventure in an Instax glitter frame full of festive sparkle or get crafty and create your own set wrapped in a ribbon or popped in a decorative accordion frame. The only question is what colour film suits them the best? Which brings us to our next point…
The colours and patterns available with Instax film are a serious wow factor. There are so many to choose from that you can have different colours to suit different moods. Taking your camera to a Halloween party? Make sure you pick the black ones. Feeling fun? The comic book ones or white with coloured polka dots. Off to a wedding? The confetti ones! One of our favourite ideas using the coloured films is creating a rainbow wall with Instax film. With coloured film fading from zesty yellow and green to violet, you can display the full range of your adventures in framed in colours to match!
From proms to weddings, capturing love and romance on Instax film is as cute as it gets. Get DIY with your save the date cards and take pictures of the two of you looking happy and write the date underneath – or display your favourite couple shots in a heart shape on your wall. Don’t worry if you want to create Instax prints out of pictures you’ve already taken – you can always print them with your own Instax Share SP-2 Printer or Mini Link Printer.
It’s not just fun fun fun that the Instax can be used for. It can also help you get dressed, cook and even pack for a trip! Every time you have an amazing outfit on, take a snap and create an outfit catalogue to keep in your wardrobe for those groggy mornings when you just don’t have time to think ‘chic’. Or take a picture of the contents of your suitcase so you can quickly see what you need to take with you next time, and if you’ve forgotten anything easily. Keep the picture inside your suitcase for ease. The organisation possibilities are truly endless.
