Look in the mailbox each day and you’ll see many leaflets/brochures wasting there. Why not turn them into something nice and useful? Let’s make an origami frame out of these papers.

This frame is particularly useful for pre-schools that uses the children's photo and name to tag their book shelves, shoe rack and etc. It is inexpensive and very simple to do.

You'll need to cut the paper into a square. I line it with another piece of paper to make it 'harder'.

Cut a picture and paste it inside. Paste the four flips onto the photo and your photo frame is done. Put a double layer tape at the back if you wish to stick in onto the children's bookshelves, etc.

I like this! I don’t have to spend extra money to get those photo frames. Hmm…going to make some for my parents so they can admire their grandson & granddaughter. hehehe

I love this idea..simple and nice..Never think of it before!!

that’s a great idea! it will look nice made in a collage pattern like a series of collage frames of different colors on a big board!

we don’t have much magazines here since i keep throwing ’em…hehehe coz they easily stack up. Ok I will try to do this soon, I just printed our some b&w photos that can go well in that colorful collage. *fingers crossed*

hey merryn! I finally did it! I submitted awhile ago. hope you’ll like it =)

ooops, no b&w photos coz it didn’t give much life to the frames

I have been exploring for a little for any high quality articles or weblog posts on this kind of house . Exploring in Yahoo I finally stumbled upon this web site. Studying this information So i am glad to show that I have a very good uncanny feeling I came upon just what I needed. I such a lot no doubt will make certain to don?t overlook this website and give it a glance on a continuing basis.
