    Picture of my pin collection - Need framing ideas

    Hi Everyone,
    Here is a picture of my main collection, Daisy Duck. I was thinking about framing some of them but I'm not the most creative person. I would love to hear some ideas from some creative micechatters. Thanks in advance.

    So many mouse ears, so little time...

    Re: Picture of my pin collection - Need framing ideas

    i used a black framed shadowbox and the lined the back with cork bord and black denim. then i can just push the pins in the back and they are still protected by the glass but can show depth. like the 3d ones or the diorama pins. heres a picture. i got all the stuff at joanns. it wasnt expensive but it wasnt super cheep either. but im really happy with the way it looks on the wall. and i dont have to worry about any falling off and getting lost cause theyre behind glass. before when i just had them on a board one fell off and just dissapeared. it was one i had looked a long time for so i was upset and then got the shadowboxes. im in the process of making more as i recently got back from disneyland and have many new ones and needed more frames.

    If you live by an IKEA, they have some pretty nice shadow boxes at a good price. That's what I'm planning on doing once I get some more pins to frame

    Those are some cool frames!!
    Once I get my first few pins on ebay, I need to acquire something like these to put them on
    I'll have to check out the shadow boxes!! That's a smart idea!!!

    Here's what I went with. Just found the largest corkboard I could find, cut it out, and covered it with black felt.

    Maybe you folks can tell me though. Does gettin' two womenfolk mean you're the winner or the loser?

    Nice Skawt!

    So where do you find corkboard? I've been having trouble finding it. I only found sheets of it on eBay. Our hobby store and Home Depot don't carry it.

    I remember finding it in 4x8 sheets a few years ago but couldn't find it when I did this so ended up buying a large cork bulletin board from WalMart.

    I would like to make another one a little larger, this one is just a little bigger than 2 feet x 2feet.

    Um... our WalMart doesn't have it. My next thought was maybe flooring businesses, since the seller on eBay was selling sheets of it for using on floors.

    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...
