2. Turn over and fold all four corners to center intersection, then unfold.

3. Turn over the paper and fold all four outermost corners to the closest intersection.

4. Collapse the paper toward the center to make the picture frame shape.

5. Insert photos inside the frames and set aside.

6. Make 12 joints by folding the 3-inch paper in half then folding four corners to the center. You will now have a small square to tuck into each photo frame.
