Triple Mini Photo Frame, from guess what ......

... three square mdf coasters from Candy Box Crafts of course.

Ok, I admit it, I seem to be getting a little obsessed with mdf coasters at the moment, but they are just so very versatile.

To make the photo frame, I covered the front of each of the 3 coasters in paper. (I used the brown and cream script sheets from the 6 x 6 "Time To Celebrate" Graphic 45 pad.)

I then cut 3 squares of cardboard approx 3/8ths of an inch smaller than the coaster, out of which I cut a 2 inch square to make a small frame. I covered the frames in a coordinating paper from the 8 x 8 "Time To Celebrate" Graphic 45 collection and attached four ornate metal corners to each frame.

The frames were then attached to the coasters using 3D foam on the bottom and left & right sides,  don't use any foam on the top of the frame as you need to leave a gap in order to insert a photo.

I used card to make hinges and attached the coasters all together. I then used a square of decorative paper to cover the back of the coasters. Hey presto a triple mini photo frame.
