scrappy picture frames

Hi everyone... today I'm going to make a birthday present for my sister-in-law, Jen.  She moved to Texas in the fall and we all miss her lots!
I got these frames at a craft store... they were plain old chipboard to start.  I painted them turquoise.

I decided to add a little white to the top to dull it down a bit.  When the frames dried, I started modpodging paper scraps on the frames.

There are amazing scrapbook papers in the stores, aren't there?  I want to decorate my whole house with them! 

I added some ribbon through the holes at the top of each frame.  The frames are filled with paper until Jen fills them with pictures of my cute nephews and niece.

Last of all, I used a few remaining scraps and made her a card to go with the frames.  Fun... now if I can just get them into the mail...
