My inspiration for this project came from all those $20 frames you see at target that make the pictures look like they are floating.  Well, I made these ones with two pieces of plexiglass.  (I already had the plexi but it probably would have cost around $2 for the amount that I used.) I drilled some holes, then I screwed them together with flat sided machine screws (98 cents) and some wing nuts ($1.96).  I hot glued magnets (already had) on the back, but really you could use any hanger.  I also sanded the edges of the glass and colored them red with a sharpie to make them stand out a little more.  You can't really get the whole effect from the picture, but trust me, it looks awesome in real life.  


I needed some help from lady liberty because I only had two magnets, and plan to get more so that it will stay up better.


Here's a picture with the flash.  


The back.

Sorry the pictures are a little fuzzy, they never look that way on the 1" display on the camera.

That's a fabulous idea. I  need to get some more family pictures to put on my fridge (I also need more magnets!)

Thanks all! Since I already have most of the supplies I'll probably make a ton of these to give to my sis for Christmas, she always needs more picture frames.
