Free Instagram Printable Template

Instagram is so fun and hip right now I decided to jump on the bandwagon and make a free template for everyone.  I’ve basically made a layout that is printable in 5X7 or 8X12.  Here are a few uses for the template:

Perfect for a teen or pre-teen scrapbook.  There are places to put the date, the event, who is in the photo, and what they were doing, and lets face it, way cooler than cutting and gluing pages together.

It’s almost time for school to start again, and it seems every year one of my kids is supposed to bring a bunch of photos to tell the class about themselves.  These are perfect.  The one below shows an example of a boy showing off his swimming skills as well as lets the teacher know whats going on.

Invitations are always a fun way to get creative.  Here a teen band made a concert poster using the template.  The text boxes were used to fill in all the necessary 411.

  5. Choose a frame.
  6. Save Photo in largest format (“Russel”).
  7. Open Publisher doc provided below.
  8. Insert picture from file.
  9. Right-click photo, select size, re-size to specs on template.
  10. layer photo over templates gray photo box
  11. Replace text with desired words
  12. Add a tiny photo for the top image
  13. Highlight the entire image, right-click, save as an image.
  14. Print photo or Upload to online photo studio like Costco.
The following show all of the details of what I used if you do NOT have Publisher

  • I love this template! I was unable to download the publisher file. Any ideas? Could you send it via e-mail? I would like to use it in an upcoming social studies project.

    • I emailed it to you. Unfortunately the way that I have it saved, it doesn’t show a picture. Just click on the down(load) arrow on the top left of the screen to download.

  • Amanda,
    Thanks so much! Thanks for taking the time to create such a popular template, and thanks for sharing it with all of us. I would love it if you could email me the file.
    I was inspired by @NYPL’s #libraryshelfie day. For Valentines day next week my fourth graders will be taking pictures of their own #shelfies instead of #selfies and then we’ll be “liking” them with red hearts. I am excited that we’ll be talking about books we love rather than who loves each other. And it should make a killer bulletin board!

    Thanks again, Becky Kaija

    to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed
