5 Ways To Show Off Your Snapshots (No Wall Space Needed.)

By • 6 months ago with no replies yet

Photo Fun Fact: The average smartphone user takes about 150 photos per month, with iOS users besting Android and women taking snaps more often than men. 

Most smartphones can hold at least 630 photos, and if we’re being honest here, not every one of these images is destined for space on the wall. Enter the digital image conundrum: what to do with the images that capture memories far too special to live an eternity behind your phone’s screen, but don’t make the gallery wall cut?

We’ve rounded up 5 fun and easy ways to showcase your snapshots and most can be finished in under 5 minutes!

1. Postcard Rack

Re-purposing a postcard rack as a 4×6 photo holder is the perfect way to show off 100+ prints in a space-saving, eye-catching display! With a small footprint, this rack can fit into any corner of the house and multiple prints can fit into each holder making it a cinch to update the photos.

Tip: Push the pins in at a slight downward angle to create a stand for the bottom of your image without having to put holes in the photo!

 

5. DIY Wood Block + Ultra – Thick Square Photo

This one is a bit more involved than the first four, but is the perfect go-to for DIYers. (bonus: it involves power tools!)

Supplies:

– A wood block (we used a piece of scrap wood from the studio)

– A table saw

– A photo printed on Ultra-Thick invitation paper (use above step-by-step)

 

Measure the width of your photo and subtract a half inch off of the end:saw1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Score the entire width of the block *just* deep enough to support the bottom edge of the photo:
