Trifold photo frame

Hi everyone!
Myry again and today I'm gonna show you how to make a trifold photo frame using these superb Art Nouveau frames!
You'll see how easy it is!
Join the 3 cardstock pieces with the small lace pieces, one above and one below about 2cm from the edge. If your embellishments have volume, leave a good margin between cardstocks.
Choose carefully which will be the front and back covers, as well as the order when folding the trifold. Glue the ribbons behind the paper for the cover, one of them should be much longer than the other, so that it goes around the entire trifold to close.
As you can see one of the frames is in the back, my mistake! 
Now choose the order of the frames...
...and paint them, use texture paste... Try different things!
When the frames are completely dry, glue them on top of a piece of acetate of the same size. 
Now, you can leave a little more to the margins and make tabs or you can glue them as is but then you'll have to adapt your photo to fit it. Think wisely!
Once you have it clear, glue them in place and decorate!
And that's the end! Easy peasy!
