Step 1: Make the Front of Body

Create the front of the body. I put 1/4 inch holes at the corners and left enough space to cover the edges of the photo. This one is 3 inches tall and about 2 inches wide, all while being around .115 inches thick.


Step 2: Make Back of Frame

The back of the frame should have the same height, width, and thickness. Also it should have 4 rectangles on it, for the stands to fit through. My rectangles are .5 inch in height and .115 inches wide, and vertically 2 inches apart.

Step 3: Make Two Stands

I made two stands, .115 inches thick, and 2 inches high. I made the angle a little under 90 degrees.

Lastly, make four .25 inch diameter studs to hold the parts together.

Either in an Altoids can, or assembled on your desk, your photo frame is ready to go!
