Instant Frames!

2009-03-30 11

No more loose Polaroids! This is a quick and simple way to frame those precious Polaroid or Instax photos.

After you’ve used all the shots on your film save the film cartridge (that black plastic that hold the film). Now all you do is cut through the thin black strip at the bottom of this container and slide your instant photo in – easy and environmentally friendly! A bit of Blu-Tack on the back and they’re ready for the wall, But they’ll also stand up quite well on their own. If you get bored with the displayed photo it’s easy as pie to change it up!

    You don't have to cut anything. Just slide them in. If anyone wants a shit load of those, you can have mine. They aren't recyclable so I have saved all of mine in hopes that someone might use them for something other than this someday.

    I always would do this with my last shot and whoever was with me at the time would get it. I miss polaroids.
