In case you weren’t aware, Gilit has been sharing some pretty amazing and super helpful Instagram tips, so if you’re not following her Instagram account (@thebannerie), you need to! Like, right now. (Editor’s note: you see why I love Bethany, right? I don’t force her to shamelessly promote me but she does it anyway.)
Speaking of Instagram, one of my favorite “tools” for when I’m taking flatlays is painter’s tape. So much so, that I keep a roll in my Instagram prop box.
Yes, I keep a box of props for photos that has everything from mini disco balls to washi tape!
Here are some ideas of things you can keep in yours:
Mini Honeycomb Balls
I like them because they are inexpensive, cute and tiny! You can get a pack of 10 for only $7 from the Oh Happy Day Shop!
Chances are you’ve already met Lola the flamingo, but did you know that Lola is a candle?! The Bannerie has them for $10 less than the ones at Nordstrom!
You can use The Bannerie’s banners to share phrases like Gilit does. Thanks to her I’m obsessed with punching today in the face.
While I wouldn’t recommend keeping your phone in your prop box (you might need it for Instagram photos and the occasional phone call), I encourage you to think outside of the box! You can always use what you have on hand!
Do you have an Insta prop box? What do you keep in it?
