I found an example of these hanging hand made frames so I had to make some of my wedding. I wasn't sure if anybody cared for a tutorial, so I thought I would just put some pictures together to show how I did it. =S Please let me know what you think. I'm going to make some for my sister in law of her rescue dogs.
Here is the end result:

When planning the wedding I had bought these save the date cards super cheap but never used them. Even though they were $5 but 40 cards I held onto them knowing that one day their purpose would come to me. here is what they looked like before.

then I went to Micheal's and bout some valentines day scrapbooking paper. They had a big pack for only 5 bucks! I picked this sheet to use as my photo corners.

To make the photo corners I didn't really measure, but I would say they can be from an inch and a half thick to half an inch. I just cut a strip to fit one heart in. and then folded them diagonally to form a tiny triangle corner. This way it would hold my pictures without me having to glue them to the cardstock.

After folding and gluing it looked like this. The green polka dot is the other side of the paper that I used. You can see the hole I punched in to pull the ribbon in. I was lucky to find a hole punch that was in the shape of a heart!

After putting in all the corners I laced the ribbon through the holes I punched on both sides so that each tier would hang from the other, I used 2 different ways to string. One was more of a shoe lace kinda way and the other was just a box.

After all that I inserted my pictures and it looks like this:

And for the bottom I tied (with great difficulty!) and glued some leftover ribbon we used for the wedding with our names and date!
