Clayton and I are fortunate to have nice, big families that love us, and whom we love.  As any of you who are in a similar situation can attest, an interesting byproduct of having loved ones is a plethora of "wallet sized" pictures.  We, like most people, put these on our fridge, the better to proudly show off the gorgeous people to whom we can claim a relationship.  As you can see in the "Before" picture above, though, keeping the pictures on the fridge is a surprisingly difficult task!  If you use a magnet that's too small or too weak, the pictures fall off the fridge and get trampled or dirty.  If you use a magnet strong or big enough to keep the picture up, large chunks of the picture are covered or obscured.  

Finally, I got tired of struggling with the pictures every day.  So I bought a frame and some tiny clothes pins and found a new way to display those little wallet pictures.  This project was so easy, and I think the pictures look way better like this, and I know they'll stay nicer a lot longer there than on our freezer door.  Of course, another added benefit was a less cluttered fridge space.  When I do this project again, I'll post step-by-step pictures and instructions, and turn it into a tutorial.  In the meanwhile, what do you think of my first attempt?  Do you think you might try something like this?

Very nice. I would use a less busy background. The clothes pins are a great idea. That would ake a nice border garland of pictures, too!
