Sticky9 Square Prints & GIVEAWAY!

I know how it goes.  You spend all this time taking wonderful pictures (hundreds, maybe thousands!), and you don’t have a thing to show for your hard work.  Instead, they are sitting on your computer somewhere off in la la land.  I’ve been there and, truthfully, I am usually still there. It’s heartbreaking, really.  I love going through printed photos from my childhood simply because they’re something I can hold onto.  Is anyone else with me on this?

Today, I am here to tell you that there is hope.  I have teamed up with the fantastic crew behind Sticky9 to share with you one way I have recently used their Square Prints.  If you’re not familiar with Sticky9, they are a London-based business whose mission is to turn digital content into fun and tangible objects like magnets, phone cases, prints, and calendars.  In other words, a dream come true!

The best part?  This post comes to you with a GIVEAWAY!  More on that later, though… First, I want to show you my closet!  A Beautiful Mess posted my picture below on their Instagram feed, and it received more than 5,400 likes — yippee!

I would consider my closet to be quite ordinary.  Our apartment has very little closet space, so it can get kind of hairy in there sometimes.  In order to spruce things up a bit in my closet, I decided to order myself a set of Sticky9’s Square Prints.  It’s a fantastic deal: 27 premium matte prints for $16.99 (free shipping worldwide).  I may have screeched when my package arrived.

Going into this project, I already knew what I wanted my final product to look like: a colorful, memory-filled surprise every time I opened my closet.  Now, I spend more time gazing at my pictures than I do getting dressed.  Oops.

Here’s what I used for this project:

Before you start hanging, take a few minutes to spread your photos out on the floor.  Figure out what order you want to arrange the photos in, and how much space you’ll need between each.  I also took this time to write on the back of each photo in pencil.  I wanted to remember why these specific pictures were so important to me.

To hang your photo display, place your first two thumbtacks on the inside of your closet door at equal heights (I eyeballed mine).  Take the hemp string and tie a knot around the first thumbtack.  Pull it taut and tie another knot to the second thumbtack.  Double check that the string is level.  Clip on your first four photos!  (You’ll notice that the string will dip in the middle — this is normal!)

Repeat this process five more times, spacing each row about five inches below the previous thumbtacks.  Then, admire your work!  It’s that simple.

And now for the fun part: a GIVEAWAY!  One lucky reader will win their own set of premium matte prints, courtesy of Sticky9.  HOW COOL, RIGHT?!

  1. This is such a great way to spruce up any blank wall or find that one place to store related memories! I’ve been looking for some sort of scrapbook system to hold pictures and letters of me and my own loved one. This may be the perfect way to get those pesky digital prints into something tangible. And I’ve got the perfect blank wall above my bed that will gladly hold those memories.

    I was so glad to get this email this morning – following this blog makes Mondays bright! Thanks Victoria!

  2. I love this kind of thing! They look so cute and stylish. I would hang pictures of all my travels over the map I already have in my room. I love documenting my travels but rarely get physical print outs so this would be a great prize. Already following you ’cause I love your blog!
    Have a good day 🙂

  3. I would use these square prints for my wedding. It would be a good way to display pictures of me and my fiancé’s relationship through the years.

  4. Hi, Victoria – I would string some up like you did. I just redid my studio, and I want an inspiration wire. It would be nice to print out some of my favorite photos from my garden {I’d especially like to see some of those bright photos on gloomy days like this one!}. Congrats on the Instagram feature on ABM! Following your blog in a sec…

    Have a great rest-of-the-week! 🙂

  6. I’ve been wanting to do this project for a long time and I have the perfect spot picked out. Your closet will be my inspiration! Plus who doesn’t love itty bitty mini clothes pins?

  7. Hi Victoria!
    I discovered your blog just few minutes ago from I opened the link just because I really liked your picture and then I found this post with this wonderful idea and a giveaway! Yeah! Blue Monday no more!!! 😀 😀
    I was trying to find a way to print my pictures differently and this could be a perfect solution! I still have all my London-streetart pictures to print. I took them one year ago. They would be beautiful on my white wall with all those clothespins!!

    • Ciao, Ilaria! Thank you so much for coming on over to Scissors & Sage! I’m so glad this could brighten your Monday. That sounds like a lovely DIY photo idea. You’ve been entered into the giveaway! -Victoria

  8. Hi Victoria!

    What a fun idea! I recenlty became a first time homeowner, so I have many empty white walls that need decorating. It would be a great way to print pictures from places I’ve been visited around the world, to add a little bit of cultural diversity to my home!



  9. Awwe this is such a cute idea. I love taking photos, I love printing them, and I love even more bragging about them. I’d totally use this to give a little life to my home office/guest room. I think it’s adorable.

  10. I would definately do the exact same thing as you did here. As a matter of fact, I am already planning to do it over our new teak bookcase! It would look so cosy and pretty and I cant wait to get to it!!

    I am also already following your blog – such a good inspirationel one 🙂

    Have a nice day!


  11. These are so lovely. I would probably post them on the wall in diagonal lines above the computer in our workspace. It’s a dark corner where I lesson plan every Sunday morning, so this would make it a more pleasant and inviting space to spend a few hours in 🙂 I believe I follow your blog, but I’ll double check and sign up if I don’t!

  12. I absolutely love this idea! I am currently organizing and decorating my art room. I would love to do something like this with my photos on one of the small walls, would be just an inspiration to look at and feel happy about! Great idea!!
