If you're like me, you sometimes look at people's impressive, beautiful Instagram Stories and think, "How on Earth did they do that?!" It's hard for me to figure out how they create such cool stories, from the varied text to the videos to the music to the extra photos that appear. But there's a hack from Twitter user Kat Tepylo Murphy that will allow users like myself to get more creative with our Instagram Stories: you can turn any photo in your camera roll into a sticker.
Thankfully, it's supersimple to do and can be done in just a few steps. First, open Instagram Stories and upload or capture your background photo. Next, open your photos app, go to the photo you want as your sticker, and copy the image (to do this, click on the icon on the bottom left of your screen, then "copy" will come up). Finally, switch back to Instagram. You'll see an "Add Sticker" pop up; click on it — and voila, the other photo will pop up on your story. Then move it around to where you want it on the story.
And that's it! So the next time your friends are watching your Instagram Stories, they might just be the ones that are now thinking, "How did she do that?!"
