 I actually started making these for a friend who was married in Vegas this week.

I cut out the middle of one card, and with some creative taping and the plastic wrapping from a sticker package, I came up with these frames. I only use two cards for each frame, cause I use the cut-out middle as the stand in the back. I used aces for the frames I made for my friend.

It's so simple, but a little finicky. I used the tape like lamination, the way some others on here do for recon purses and stuff made from other paper products.
