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. I recently started printing my Instagrams, but I had a hard time deciding how to display them. I wanted to be able to easily switch the photos while also keeping up the ones I couldn't part with. The solution: I made my own interchangeable Instagram frame.
