DIY Instax Frame


Recycling is always a good idea for our planet. Let’s make some gifts for our friends using Instax cartridges! Learn how I did it after the jump.

During a party or when you’re hanging out with your friends, do you take Instax photos with them? After taking photos, where would you place the photos? Instead of buying an Instax album, why don’t you use the cartridge?

This is the original cartridge


  • scissors
  • glue
  • clay
  • photos
  • Instax cartridge

The most important thing is the blueprint! You must have an idea for the design that you want on the frame before you start making it. You can do whatever design you want and use whatever color you choose, it’s all up to you!

Let’s do it together and make the most analogue gift to our friends!

For spur-of-the-moment pictures that can’t wait to be seen and loved, our Instant Cameras will do its job in giving you your shots in no time! Check out our selection here.

    This is quite smart! Usually, I just store all my Instax photos in their cartridges but I never really thought of decorating them. Good one! >w<
