With a little time on my hands I decided to be a total chick and check out #lovenotes on Istagram. My search  uncovered hundreds of love notes, pics, and collages – so I picked the top 11 most creative ways you can say ‘I love you’ to the people in your life who make you smile every day + a quick and easy how-to guide to get your Instagram account up and running!

Instagram is a photo sharing app released in late 2010 allowing users to take ordinary photos and turned them into gorgeous prints. And signing up is easy as 1-2-3. Just download the app for either iPhone or Android and create a user name and password – once your account is set up you can start snapping pics of anything that grabs your attention. For cool and unique looks use the many filters and frames Instagram offers.
