How to Create an Animated Gif

Hey everyone! I have been playing around and making these animated gifs and uploading them to Pinterest to give folks more information about products like my interactive notebooks and Back to School Starter Kits. I thought you might like to know how to create these too, whether for fun or for your products, and maybe my fellow Jamberry consultants could use them for parties too!

What is a GIF? Well, you have probably seen GIFS that look like this (Love Friends!) all over the place.

I saw some other teachers had made GIFS for their products and decided to give it a try! Here is what mine looks like for my Second Grade Language Arts Interactive Notebook.

Ready to try and make your own? Take a look at my short (4 minute) video on how to make one. Hope it helps!


If this tutorial was helpful, please let me know and if you want to see my interactive notebook that was featured, click here!  Happy creating!


  1. Thank you for sharing this! I had never thought to use these for advertising products. Love it! =)

      PS I don't know why the video is off center. It says centered in my blogger. Oh well! :)
