When my 88 year old granddad came to visit from France, I naturally took lots of pictures of him. I then had the happy task of deciding how to display all these photographs. I wanted to make some sort of a paper easel that would hold a lot of pictures, but at the same time I wanted to alternate which picture was on display.
The easel that I came up with could also easily be used to make your own calendar, or perhaps display a quote for the day.
- 1 Piece of lightweight chipboard 12×12
- Patterned paper of your choice (for the easel and for the photo pages)
- Adhesive ( I used the Scotch Advanced Tape Glider)
- Cinch and wire
Directions For The Easel:
- Cover the 12×12 piece of chipboard with some designer paper of your choice.
- Cut the card down the middle to create two 6×12 sheets (this will make two easels).
- Using your scoreboard and working on the 12″ side of your board, score the card at the 5, 6 & 7″ score lines.
- Fold the card in an accordion style.
- Punch holes in each end of the card using the Cinch.
Directions For The Photo Pages:
- Cut your patterned paper into 6×5 pieces.
- Punch holes in the top of each 6×5 piece (doing this first helps with the placements of photos and embellishments).
- Choose pictures and adhere to the paper.
- At this point, decorate with any optional embellishments.
Put the pictures and the easel together with the cinch & wire and bind in the usual manner.
