How to Display Photos - A DIY Accordion Album (VIDEO)

Wondering how to display photos in a way that doesn't involve a scrapbook or frames? Then check out this easy project from Elizabeth Abernathy.

If you have enough follow-through to actually download and print the photos on your digital camera, I salute you. But you also might have a new problem on your hands: Lots of photos that have nowhere to go. Sure, some can go into a scrapbook (which you will shut and never really look through again) or in a frame (good for the 3 really great shots in the mix). But I like this idea for a standing accordion photo display from Elizabeth Abernathy.

With the accordion display, you can show a bunch of photos at once, cheaply. Elizabeth used photo postcards from Italy to illustrate the tutorial, which shows the power of using images from the same theme or event. This would make a great gift for someone you've traveled with, a wedding thank-you or a birthday present. Check out the full tutorial over at Elizabeth Abernathy.
