One of the biggest requests we get from customers, once they’ve ordered their prints – is to show them what to do with them! Well there are a million different things and ways you could go, and we’ve some seen beautiful ones on Instagram, from full on Nifty polaroid walls, to strung up as bunting at parties, to great frames.

Besides printing photographs we also do enjoy a little DIY, and Typo is one of our absolute favourite stores, obsessed with everything much? So we decided to collaborate with Typo on a series of what-to-do-with-your-Nifty-prints-DIY-blog-posts, what’s in it for you? Well a R500 Typo voucher. We’re going to be showing you our DIYs, and you’ve got to show us yours by including the hashtag #NiftyxTypoDIY on your Instagram post. Our favourite DIY will win the voucher, it’s as simple as that. The competition will be open for the next month – ending 17 August so you have plenty of time to order some more Nifty prints, get crafty and show us how it’s done!

On a scale from one to super simple, we decided to keep our first Nifty x Typo DIY the simplest, you can whip up these beautiful gift cards in under 5 minutes and really impress your friends and family with the personalised cards, oh how thoughtful of you and they’re fun to make too. For this DIY we raided Typo & got gift cards (R39 for 10) + envelopes (R39 for 10) + red glitter alphabet stickers (R49 for 2 sheets) + Washi tape (R59 for 2 Disney edition rolls), extras just some Bostik glue and Nifty prints

Step 1: Simply glue your chosen Nifty print and stick it on your card, however you like

    Does one enter with an instagram and hashtag of the DIY? Or could we blog it and tweet the link with a hashtag? :)

    Thanks x
