O.k., so my hubbys birthday is Friday (the 13th- yeah, I know, he IS evil ,the friday the 13th birthday thing has happened to him like 3 times already)  and I had a friend take some nice pin up pictures of me for him but I don't know what to do with them- a calendar is out, too late in the year, and I'd feel weird just giving him a few framed pictures, because I live here too, wouldn't it seem a little vain of me? Also, I'm thinking this might not be such a good idea anyway, I kind of always dress like this, so I wonder if he will think it's just no big deal..   Anyway.   It will be o.k. if his gift is a little late, so if your ideas are kinda big that's o.k. too. Or if you think I should just scrap the whole thing, lemme know.   Here are a few shots that I'll be using, PLEASE HELP!!  (I look like such a tool, I know)












I have no idea why the last picture is upside down, but jsut tilt your neck and lemme know what you think!

I think it'd be cool if you printed out the pictures and decoupaged them on something with a pin-up theme Cheesy

Oh, and I really like the perspective on the second picture XD

Hmm, I second the decopauge idea.  I think they'd be killer on a tray, but that might not be... manly enough.  Maybe a wooden box he keeps things in?

Or maybe you could give them to him and make something extra.  Turn one into a stencil and put it onto a shirt.  Or on a picture frame.  Or... use the image to frost some glasses, though that might be too complicated. 

Now, this might be even more complicated, but... cufflinks?  I found this link.

These pics are a little... eh, especially the company ones.  But I think ones with your photos would be pretty awesome.  Just the time & money issue and if he actually needs them.  Haha.


But whatever you do, they're awesome pictures!

Those pics are awesome!  A frind of mine once made a quilt with pictures of an old school truck her boyfriend was fixing up.  I think she just used transfer paper to put the photos on cloth and used a camo pattern for the rest.  It turned out really cute, and he loved it!  Good luck!

I like all your ideas, I think frosting some glasses would be cool, also using a stencil... but I don't know what I'd put the stencil on.  Doesn't this seem kindof vain of me?  I'm really not I swear!

How about for the 3rd pic, cut it out and make a plexiglass keychain like in this tutorial?: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=129585.0

You could also make some of them wallet-size and laminate them back to back for his wallet.

Such cute pictures!!

Thanks for your ideas, I don't hink he'd carry a key chain, but the laminated pics would probably be the best bet.

Your husband is a lucky man.

Forget "vanity". I'd get one blown up and transfered to a big canvas. Hang it in your bedroom. Or over the fireplace!

LOL, thanks, I wish I had that kind of self confidence in myself, but putting up a huge canvas with me on it would probably just make me pick out all my little flaws all the time.  But I REALLY appreciate your compliment!  Smiley

First - You look lovely.
Second - It is not vain to give your husband pictures of yourself.  They turned out great and it would be a shame not to use them for anything.  I second the idea of enlarging one and putting it on canvas to hang.  The pictures really are great.
