Modpodged Picture Frame Gift

I made these two frames as part of my Mum's Christmas present. Please excuse the reflection of my Christmas lights in the pictures! The frames were bought in the €2 shop (10"x 8") and were horrible plastic black and white things. I got an old French dictionary and inked up the pages with Tim Holtz Old Paper Distress Ink. Then I tore them into strips and modpodged them onto the frame. A few layers of paper and Mod Podge later and I let it dry out. Then I printed out some beautiful flower prints from The Graphic Fairy (free to download), cut them out and stuck them on with another layer of Mod Podge. I find that a sponge applicator is far better than a brush for this kind of thing. I got a great value pack of 25 for €2.99 from Cardz N Scrapz. The prints inside the frames were bought from an Etsy shop called Optic Illusions. I bought the two bird prints for $2.50 and they print beautifully on A4 photo paper. By the way I got the prints for 50% off using the coupon code CHRISTMAS. She has some great printables in her shop and the customer service was fantastic :) So here are a few more pictures. Thanks for looking!
