These are some frames I made a couple months ago.

These two are made out of 1in. trim board and pop cans which are just stapled on.

These two are made out of 1in. trim board covered in comics and magazine clippings.

Comic Decoupage frames have always been cool of course, but I just want to say that the pop can thing is WICKED. I really liek the one with all the different cans... kudos to you!

It's kinda complicated to explain.....I just kept trying different things until it looked right.
I basically just cut off the ends of the pop cans with an razor knife so that they were flat pieces, wrapped them around the frame, and stapled them down.  Sorry that I can't expain it any better.  I hope you get the idea!
