Use Your Old Negatives to Make a Lovely Birthday Gift


This is an example for a nice way to use your old negatives. Just be creative and make your friends happy with your negatives!

All you need is an empty picture frame, negatives, scissors and for the earrings some beads and hooks from your lokal beads shop.

Cut the edges of the negatives, so that it just about fits in the back of the frame, it looks nice, when it archs a little bit.

For the earrings, combine a negative with some random beads or whatever you can find that looks nice with the negative and attach it to the hook, of course if its a negative of a picture with the birthday-girl on it – even better!
You can glue the negative to the back of the frame, but it should be working fine without glue, and that way you can change the composition of the negatives as you like it.

You and your friends might get the best effect when the frame stands or hangs loose where some light can shine through it, so you can actually see whats on the negative.

Have fun!
