my cousin is getting married and as a gift i'm going to make her a scrapbook-style picture frame. there will be two 4x6 spaces (and i'm going to be sure to take lots of snapshots in the right orientation to give to her later to go in the frame!), but of course there are no photos yet.

does anyone have ideas about how to decorate the empty boxes for when i give it to her? i think it will be fairly obvious what the point of the gift is, but i want to do it in a way that makes the objective jump out at her.  ... ideas? thanks!

How about a campy collage with stick-figure drawing of the couple (draw a veil on your cousin's circle-head), a banner in the background that says "wedding", and then type or write in a fake quotation at the bottom of the box to get the point across: "Here we are at our reception, shortly before I threw wedding cake in my sweetie's face." Or "Here's a picture taken with my ultra-crafty cousin, who made me this cool scrapbooky frame!"
