From layering text, to adding GIFS, to using the eraser tool, there are so many ways to get creative with your Instagram stories using only the Instagram app.
The possibilities are endless.
I’ve been a fan of watching Instagram story editing ideas on YouTube for awhile now, because some of these people think out-of-the-box in the best way. I use all of their tips when I’m wanting to put a little extra effort into my stories.
&, when I do use these tips, I usually get asked if I’m using 3rd-party apps to create some of the text & effects I use. The answer is– NOPE! I’m just using Instagram and a creative eye.
Before we get into my favorite videos for story inspiration, I wanted to give y’all a quick pro-tip: Pinterest is a great resource to discover how to find the cutest GIFs & more interesting ways to edit stories. Here’s a link to a little board I started with some inspo.

I truly think YouTube might be my favorite source to learn basically EVERYTHING. I find myself going down rabbit hole after rabbit hole on a daily basis.
There are worse ways to spend my time, I suppose.
I hope you found some next-level ways to get creative with your instagram stories here! I’m excited to see your take on these editing styles. No more basic-bitch stories allowed around here.
Happy hump day & ILY & talk soon.
