Hide CaptionShow CaptionTo make this double picture frame, two tin film canisters are adhered together using epoxy.
A notch is cut into the side of the open-faced tin to hold a small light bulb. Then two slits are cut above and below the notch so that the top of the tin can covers the bulb. The bulb gives the photos a nice glow as well as some dimension. An L-bracket is fastened to the back to help hold the frame upright.
