Quick and Dirty Film Slide Display

Want a quick and easy way to display or gift a film slide? All you need is a couple of pieces of acrylic and thick rubber bands. Read on!

This is probably one of the simplest but best looking film negative displays out there. Minimalism always works in my book. Anyway, what you need are:

  • Identical acrylic pieces cut into small squares, something around 3×3 inches.
  • Thick Rubber bands
  • The negative (or negatives) you want to frame

Once you have all the items together, it’s all a matter of assembling them! Just take the negative/s you want to use, put it in the center of one acrylic square, sandwich it in, and place the rubber bands!

What do you think?

    Yes, I like it too...! Just on a technical point, though: slide films don't produce negatives, they produce positives. But I'm sure you knew that ;-)
