More Recycled Frames

Not too long ago I posted about making frames from old books. But, if you give yourself some time to play, you can make frames from just about anything.

It’s lovely to receive postcards but often they get tossed away or abandoned in a drawer. So I made frames for postcards where the corners are inserted into slits securing the card in place but not compromising the writing on the back. And they would make great frames for kids’ school drawings, too.

Above are frames made using newspaper strips, plastic detergent bottles, egg cartons, cardboard, and shoe box lids.

The above is made from a piece of styrofoam packaging,

These frames were made simply to experiment with different materials. The craftsmanship is therefore “expressionistic” and lacks precision.
