Handmade Photo Frames

Now, this is first timer for me…not the photo frame. But doing craft exchange with fellow bloggers. It was a wonderful experience where I created these two recycled frames with paper roses, and got lovely handmade gifts in return. :-)
This time I tried two different designs. First one, by slightly modifying the calendar, whereas in other one I have used the desktop calendar as it is, advantage being - the frame is self supported. There is no need to attach the extra support from behind. For paper roses, Helen has this lovely tutorial on her blog.

Materials Used: Old Desktop calendar, Handmade papers, pattern paper, OHP sheets, double-sided tape, Craft paper (for roses), Glue, craft scissors & embellishments.
Take a look at the final product:
