I do read here, but have never posted...hello :easter_os

I have decided I want to make pebble/button type pictures for family & friends for Xmas this year, after an experiment with one which I'm pleased with.

I bought a couple of frames from The Range, and one from Wilko's, but I was wondering if anyone knew a cheaper place to buy a job lot, as I need about 20?

Thank you:beer:

    Ikea have the square white box frames, and also some lovely little white square mirrors I've used for collaging round the edges which might work nicely with your button pictures. They're probably about the same price as Wilko and the Range though - have you tried ebay?

  • You could try the Cargo Homestores, as they normally have a fairly good range of frames in sizes, depths, and colours

    Thank you for your replies.
    I live 100's miles from Cargo Stores -never heard of them so I've just looked them up.
    They don't seem to have any box frames on-line at the moment.
    Also live about 100 miles from a Ikea!

    I have actually managed to pick up 3 good ones at a car boot sale, to start my projects.
    I think I'll just buy one or two when I need them from Wilko's or The Range-depends when I make the journey to those shops.
