Broke? Cheapest photo frame for your instant photographs!

2

Want to display your instant photos? Here's the cheapest and easiest way to display them!

All you need are the left over cartridges from your film pack and some of your favourite photos!

Step 1:
Lift up the black flap on the cartridge (it’s where the photos come out from)

Step 2:
Slot the photo in!

Step 3:
Push the entire photo in…. and you’re done! :) Display it wherever you like!

This works for Instax Wide, Instax Mini and Polaroid films!

P.S. Here’s another tip for you to remove the photos easily!

Push the back of the cartridge and slide the photo out at the same time!
