And this one is easy to do, but make a
and try it out first, until you are confident in making the good one.
The images are colored with
For this you will need to cut yourself two pieces of card 12 x 16cms, and another smaller one 10 x 12cms.
The smallest piece you are going to score and fold in half, and then fold each side back on itself to create a "W" shape.

You can attach this using jump rings, but here I have used the fasteners that you can get from the hardware store to attach a bathplug.

Once the image is in place we can add this panel to the front of the "W" shape.
Make sure that it doesn't show above the edge of the panel.
Trim it if needed for a clean look.
The image should now dangle freely in this aperture.
Close the top together with a brad in each corner.
This is what the card looks like from the side view, and shows how the image is in place.
Now comes the good bit...YaaaY!
