Connect them together with decorative hinges?

Use them as covers for journals/scrapbooks/photo albums?

Christmas gifts?

If you could put a few holes up in the studs, then maybe you could put them together with wire.

I don't know what the backs are like, but if they are flat enough, I'd use the 3M Command picture hanging strips to hang them.  They're like velcro strips, but the piece you put on the wall is the command strip and comes off without damaging the walls. 

They have em in the home/hardware sections of Walmart or Target.

Wish I could use em on mine, but my frames are all the clips frames from IKEA and don't have the flat area next to the wall to make it work.  Sad

There are a few ways of joining together into one massive picture, and it does not have to be a square, but the edges need to be butted up tight.
1)Tape them together with duct tape on the backs,
2)or, if you can get small flat brackets, the kind with 2 holes that are small enough to join them from the back, side by side.
3)If you have tiny screws and a drill, even if you can't get the brackets, you can screw some paint stirrers, to join them, making one large picture. Paint the edges that will show from behind black, to blend in.  Then, put some picture wire across the whole thing, and hang it with 2 screws, not nails in the wall.
4) final option, is to first insert your pictures, then glue them to a plywood, or paneling weight board on the backs.But, this method will be permanently attached with no chance to switch out pictures. The board can have a border left and then be bolted directly to the wall in 4 corners, with the border and bolts painted black. You could even go one step further and finish it with a top layer of moulding, to cover up the bolts. This method will allow the entire piece to be mounted with no wire, making it flat, and only using 4 screws.
5) Never use nails in walls, if you can avoid it... small, thin drywall screws are much more secure, and leave less wall damage.
 6) Landlords really seldom care how many holes you put in walls, as long as you fill them in when you move.  At least that's been my experience!
