Confession: Instagram is the reason I got in iPhone a year ago. I was incredibly jealous of my friend’s sepia-toned lives and wanted to get in on the fun. So, I feigned a non-specific “problem” with my Blackberry and finagled my way into an early upgrade. I’ve been Instagramming daily since then and haven’t looked back. But as fun as all the filters and frames are, I always wanted my beloved photos to be a little less fleeting and a little more tangible. Enter: 3rd party sites that let you make really cool, non-digital things with your Instagrams. From hardcover, personalized books to sites that simply let you print from your phone, we’ve rounded up the best of the best. Hint hint! These types of projects can make great Holiday gifts, just sayin’.
