How to make a photo clip DIY frame in 5 mins

This photo clip frame is ridiculously easy to make (you can get a 1 x 6″ cut at the Home Depot if you don’t have tools at home, stain or paint desired color). 

  1. Gather your supplies.
  2. Print your photos using the Instax® SHARE SP-1 printer
  3. Add clip to top of the photo and arrange on the board as desired (measure for accuracy if thats your bag, I’m the eyeball type).
  4. Use the pencil to mark where you’d like to place the clip.
  5. Add a bead of Super Glue to the circle part of the clip, as well as the straight bar where it will contact the wood. Place on the pencil mark and hold in place for 20 seconds. Repeat for all clips.
  6. Clip photos in place.

I love you photo gift idea

Super easy clip photo frame eh?! I added a small trim piece to my frame, but that totally ins’t necessary if you’re not into cutting and nailing.

You don’t have to stick to a small board either. I also made a another larger Father’s Day photo gift using a 11″ x 13″ piece of plywood. Then printed 12 Instax photos of Daddy and his kiddos. The best part is if you take a better or more meaningful photo you can switch them out, or change the theme.

I had a lot of fun with the children snapping photos to clip up on our frame. This photo gift is not only perfect for Father’s Day. It would make a great gift for grandma and grandpa, birthdays, and especially Christmas!

    Dad and I would always go for breakfast Saturday morning and he would let me order whatever I wanted. I always ordered deep fried potatoes and hot chocolate with whipped cream on the top! One weekend he got stopped by the police for squealing his tires with his ’89 Camero. The best part is they didn’t stop him until he reached our driveway and he made me promise not to tell mom who was waited inside the house!

  12. Elizabeth Tuggle says:

    My dad might not have always been around because of his work schedule but he always made a point to have talks with me. I don’t have many memories of my dad because of my dad’s work schedule but he always made sure we were provided for and that he spent the little time he had with us.

  45. My dad and I spent months practicing the waltz for my prom Father-Daughter Dance. My dad was not a natural dancer by any stretch so I knew this wasn’t in his comfort zone but he plugged away. Imagine when Kenny Rogers started playing instead of the planned Viennese Waltz. My dad, ever the trooper, stomped away and I just melted for him that night.

  46. All of them! But probably fishing trips and playing monster with him, something my girls now do with my husband. 🙂

  49. I have a superstar dad. As one of six kids who were all into sports, out household was a very busy one. But we all could always count on my dad to make sure that each of our teams had at least one cheering family member, even when we played away games! My dad has always been there for us. Now he is frequently on the sidelines for the grandkids and even taught my nephews how to skate on the local lake!

    One of my best memories of my Dad was when he was working away through the week. I would wake up every Saturday morning SO excited to be able to spend the weekend with my Dad – and he would leave a treat in the fridge for me and my sister – each our own bottle of Pepsi! I guess that’s where my addiction first started 🙂

  52. My biological father was never in the picture … but my dad whom had later came into the picture treated me like as if I am his own made me feel so loved with his loving and caring gestures. Our best memory together is him bringing home some donut holes (sugar glazed munchkins) and having me sit on his lap even after a long day of work.

  59. I was about 8, and dad took me to work with him. I was already pretty excited to hang out at the store with him, but that night, he drove a different way home. I didn’t realize where we were going until we arrived at the baseball stadium! It was our first father-daughter game. We left the game early, and I think someone stole my sweatshirt, but it’s still one of my favourite memories, the first of many games together. =)
