Picture Perfect

This fall S and I went up to the lake and saw these beautiful huge picture frames. We loved them but the price and color didn't quite work for us. So I set about making ones that were similar.
First, I bought 5x7 wood frames and a piece of 2 x 2 plywood. Remember this plywood?
Then I laid out scrapbook paper to see how I wanted it to look. I ripped the edges of the paper to add some texture. Decoupaging the paper around the edges was not as easy. I should have trimmed it instead.
I decided to paint the edges brown to anchor the frame and cover the horrible edges. I used gorilla glue to connect the picture frame to plywood. Then sprayed the whole thing with ModPodge clear coat.  
We chose two baby pictures of Mouse to put in the frames. I printed them in a sepia tone. And here is the finished product.
I am pretty happy with the way they turned out.
