Free the Instagrams from your iPhone with a hand-crafted frame

Like so many other smart phone users, I love Instagram. Being a visual artist, the application is a very handy and inspiring way to edit and share photos easily and save them for inspiration.

The solution: I made my own interchangeable Instagram frame.
