Well I suppose it is since I dont know what category would be better, housewares perhaps? Anyway here are a few frames I have completed recently the first three are by me, the last was a gift from a friend, I like it lots so I thought I would share.

This is the petals from the first flowers he ever gave me, the petals are pressed between two pieces of glass, then I layed a photo on top and then glued another piece of glass. You can see the glue I used even though it dried clear. This was my first attempt at this idea. I am making more. I thought it was a good way to preserve my flowers, and keep pictures as well.

This one is just a frame I painted and put a polaroid in, I gave it to him as a surprise one night, the date is our anniversary and the chick/duck (was suppose to be a duck), is his favorite animal.

The most basic of all, a wood frame turned yellow. I think its pretty.

The one my friend made, its a bunch of little pictures glued to the tac board that is the backing for the frame. I like it lots.

Oh and by the way, this is my first crafty goodness post here. Enjoy!

I really like the flower petal one. Such a sweet idea. Perhaps use a clipframe with a plain background to avoid being able to see the glue?

Hmm, I have some flowers from the boyfriend wilting away in the corner....!

Go do it! I dried mine first though. Yeah they were originaly the clip frame thingy's but I wanted all clear. And when I added the two layers of glass and the backing they provide the clips dont work, regardless. So its sitting on a shelf, propped againt the wall. And I can always 'paint' the glue on so its thin and not 'clumpy' like it got. Thanks.
