Get your photos ready
Choose pictures that you love, and make 5 x 7 prints. Use 9, 16 or 25 photos if you want to create a grid. Try to pick photos that’ll easily fit into a square shape and that all fit a certain theme, like beach photos, close-up portraits, etc., to give your display a more cohesive look. Cut each photo down to size, using our sizing template , or by measuring 4 ¾-inch x 4 ¾-inch.
TIP: For a very creative, dramatic display, choose one photograph and crop it in to 9 equal squares, print those squares, and display the “pieces” of the photo in the CD frames
Install your display
Place each photo into a jewel case, and determine the nicest arrangement of them. Using mounting or poster tape, put each jewel case in its spot.
Change it up
You can change the photo selection easily by simply opening the jewel cases and putting new photos in there, so feel free to match the display to the season or to showcase your latest shots.
