Here's what you need:
- Paint or stain
- Paint brush
- Mod Podge
- 1 inch hinges- I used 6 hinges
Step Two: I stained the wood pieces except for the middle area on the front.
Step Three: Once your boards are dry, begin the mod podge process. Put a thin layer of mod podge on the board and on the back of the photo.
Step Four: Place the photo onto the board in the center. Be sure to smooth out the bubbles as best you can.
Step Five: Once the photo is dry, apply another coat of mod podge on top. Smooth out any bubbles.
Step Six: Once the pictures are dry, flip over and mark where you need your holes drilled. I measured 1 3/4 inches from the top and bottom.
Step Seven: Install your hinges with your screwdriver or drill.
Step Eight: Connect all of your wood pieces.
Side note on the hinge installation: I installed my hinges in an "innie" direction so that the bulk of the hinge hid between my boards. Whichever way you choose, try to do it uniformly so all the hinges look the same from the back.
And there you have it!
