I've been busy cutting out random images (or just ones i think are pretty) and words but i have no idea what i want to do with them. I was thinking about some crazy collage of some sort, but what to focus on--and what would be the point?

"Here's a big square of posterboard with a bunch of magazine cut outs on it. Happy Birthday."

Any ideas of maybe a practical-- but fun--gift?

Thank you  Grin

hmm decoupage them on a picture frame maybe- or onto the cover of a photo album.

Hmm let your imagination go wild with these. I have magazine clippigns all voer my room as well and I've taped them all to my closet doors. But as a birthday gift maybe cover a blank book and make it a journal. Then it could sell out "___'s Journal" in "ransom leters".
Or you could cover a pair of shoes in them and sue inspo. from the collage shes on here.
Or you could make calender pages.
Or you could cut them in weird shapes punch holes throught the middles and string them...though I don't know what use that would be.
Or if the receiver is a lady then maybe you could take a swing at the whole tampon dispenser craze around here and decorate or cover it with the magazine clippings. That'd be a humorous surprise.
