Only one screw per joint?

Hi all,I'm building a large picture frame (about 2' x 3') that will hold a piece of radiator cover to display pins. Using 1x3 flat stock rabbeted down the middle with routered edges and then an inlay in the rabbet.I don't have a biscuit joiner and don't want to spend money on one for one project. I could use flat corner braces and screws but wondering if one Kreg screw in each joint on the 45 would be ok? I've only ever seen 2 per joint.thanks!See More

Kreg Project Center Work Station
