A friend of mine who is a photographer took some portraits of me, and I thought it would be nice to include one or two of them in my boyfriend's Christmas present.  I asked him to choose his favorites, expecting to frame one, wrap it up, excetera, but he narrowed them down to EIGHT!

Since he likes them all evenly, I want to include them all, but eight framed pictures are a little bit much.  I'm also not so sure I want to just make prints of the other ones so he can switch them out every now and again, because I don't think he will.  Scrapbooks and albums seem a little weird, because the pictures are all from the same shoot, so there's not a lot of variation.  I'd feel a little strange making a book of just pictures of me.  Besides which, eight isn't necessarily enough for a book, is it? 

So what do I make?

what about a flip-frame? something like this:

that way it's so easy to change pictures anybody who walked by could do it, you could even do it yourself whenever you were around.

The flip frame would be perfect, except that not all the pictures are the same orientation.

Sad I'm running out of time!

what if you mounted them mats?  in a square flip-frame, so that they would have a bigger border the wrong direction.  like letterboxing, if that makes sense....

Thanks for the suggestions, but as I am running out of time, I came up with a solution yesterday.  I decided to frame my favorite of his favorites.  I also found a nice box which I will re-decorate and store the others in that, so he'll also have a place that's not a shoebox to store all of my letters and things.

Thanks again for your suggestions and happy hollidays!
