I have this creative mind that causes me to see all kinds of possibilities for what someone else might think is trash. You know those CD and DVD holders? Well, they make great picture frames! Just open your CD and take out the papers in it. You have to pry one side of it to get the paper out but if you are careful it can be done without damaging the holder. Just put your picture in and close. Walla! You now have a frame that is simple and you can make a great arrangement of them on your walls.
The DVD is very simple, you take out the picture on outside of DVD and put your picture in. No glass to break either. Another idea with the DVD is that you could hide something inside like money or special momentoes that go with picture, etc. To put on wall, you could use those little sticky glues you get in the craft departments. They come on a roll of paper and are just dots of glue (like hot glue). You could add magnets to the back like I did and put them on the fridge. The CD and DVD holders are so light that it doesn't take much for them to stick to the wall. If you have any questions, just email me. Have fun!

What a great idea! I have tons of pics and want to make a large wall coverd with photos, but we are moving in 3 years so I didn't want to put holes in the wall and buy the frames. These i can use the putty or tack for posters and with 5 teenagers i m always trying to decide what to do with all those cases, plus I can change the photos as soon as new ones arrive...how wonderful! Thank You! (05/07/2007)

Great idea, I never could figure out what to do with all of those empty 'containers' plus I love pictures, so this will definitely come in handy. Thanks for the wonderful tip!
Have a BLESSED day! (05/10/2007)
