DIY Photo Frame

Christmas is just around the corner! Why not making a DIY photo frame for your dearest friend to express your love in this season!?

The materials required in this tipster is available everywhere, and it is recyclable, so fear not of doing something that would destroy our dearly Mother Earth. The most important material is cardboard, and some stationery such as pen knife, pen/pencil, ruler and glue.

In this tipster, I am making a square frame for a instant photo. The dimension of the frame is 10cm x 10cm. Feel free customize the size of the frame to suit your photos.

1) Cut 12 square (10cm x 10cm) blocks out of the cardboard.

2) Leave 1cm for the margin of the frame, and cut away everything inside the margin. Repeat this step for 5 blocks.

3) Prepare a frame with its upper margin cut, so that your photo could slip in.

4) The preparation work is done. Now all you have to do is gather all them together. Firstly, glue the cut frame in step 3. onto a block which would be the supporting back for your photo. Then, glue the rest of the frames (prepared in step 2.) on top of it. You will have something like this:

5) Now your photo frame could barely stand, as it is not thick enough to hold the weight. Next, glue the rest of the blocks to each other and finally stick it the back of the frame. By doing this, it will create a thickness so that the photo frame would be able to stand.

6) Be creative and design your frame! I got some cock and string to decorate my frame. (inspired by Have a Corky Christmas)

And it’s done! Share your love with your friends with some DIY photo frame! :D

    Changing Seasons: Durham in Autumn

    Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.

    Zenit KM: Feathered Friends

    Their movement is as hard to predict as the weather. One minute they're on a standstill, the next they horde the sky with their brisk wings. This is precisely why people need binoculars and camouflage suits just to trace the track of birds. Similarly for photographers, these creatures present a friendly challenge. To capture the perfect stance, on land as in mid-air, is a reward.
