I recently came home from a trip from China and amongst my purchases was a pack of vintage look Chinese postcards - I knew I wanted to give some of the the postcards a special home.

Just before I left on my trip I had bought Mark Montano's "Big Ass Book of Crafts" which had a project which was a photo frame made of chopsticks.

It seemed like a perfect match - chopsticks & a vintage look Chinese postcard!

Here's the result - by the way it took a LOT of glue!

Beautiful .. simply beautiful. That frame truly suits the postcard and the wall behind it.

That's awesome. I wouldn't mind having that book. Tongue My mom thought it was hilarious the first time I showed her the book at Borders. I made some really cute picture frames from chopsticks this week. I'll have to post them later.

It's a fantastic book! I've made 3 projects from it so far and my partner thinks I may be a little obsessed with it;)
