My name is Cindy Trilsbeek, this is my idea to up-cycle a shoe-box to a photo frame. Nowadays people can take pictures of everything, thanks to the camera on every smartphone. So that gives me a reason to combine this trend in an up-cycle project. How cool would it be if I wasn’t the only one who combined this trend, my idea is to make a whole concept of it. So we got a shoe-box, this shoe-box protect your shoes the whole trip. When you unbox the shoe-box you’ll be surprised because of the frame with the same pattern as your shoes is on the inside bottom of the box. Also you’ll find out that there is an instructable inside of the box and now you gonna found it out!
