How to make an Instagram Stories graphic

It's been a while since I did a better blogging post, so this is my reprise! Since Instagram Stories was introduced, I've been fascinated by the companies and big bloggers that create graphics within their stories. There's always better, more interesting text which not only captures my visual attention, but makes me want to click to see more. 

However, I don't have the time or the team to devote to spending hours in Photoshop or InDesign creating graphics, so just brushed it off. And then, my favorite blogger secret ever, Canva, introduced IG Stories templates. SCORE! Here's a brief tutorial. 

Start by downloading the Canva app. I actually prefer to work in Canva from my laptop, but since IG Stories is on the fly, the app works just fine! 

Next, choose the Your Story template. 

From there, you'll be able to access tons of different graphics that you can completely customize by tapping on different features. 

Once you're finished, tap "share" and save the template to your phone. 

Upload it to IG Stories and voila! Done! 

Are there any other IG Story secrets I should know about? Spill your secrets!
