Instagram is one of the newest places to get crafty inspiration. Although it has been around for a few years, more and more inspiration is hitting the platform every day. But to be honest it can be overwhelming to find the content you really want. Some people post all sorts of photos, not just crafty ones, and some people posts all sorts of projects that you might not be interested in. I've compiled a list of some of the best hashtags to follow on Instagram to help you find the content that inspires you!
1. Your Favorite Company!
This one might be a no-brainer to some people, but if you're looking for ways to use your hoards of Freckled Fawn embellishments, try following #FreckledFawn for more inspiration! This works with a lot of companies, but be careful, some companies have simpler names like Photo Play may lead to getting non-scrapbooking content in your feeds since #PhotoPlay can be used by photographers and other types of artists. Instead, look at a company's feed and see what special hashtags that might use to track their projects. For instance, Photo Play actually uses #PhotoPlayPaper instead so that people can find them more easily. Search your favorite company as a hashtag to get endless inspiration from them and fellow lovers of their products!
