Unusual Wall Hangings

I found these gift bags in the dollar bin at Michaels after Christmas. They are only about an inch and a half deep, and were meant for gifting picture frames. I got them because of their color and, well, because of the price, of course! I figured I'd come up with an idea.
My guest room needed a little something so I gathered these old photographs of my parents husband, and siblings, and made scrapbook-ish pages.
I put smaller pictures in the tags that were meant to be the to-from part of the gift. I put cardboard and tissue inside to keep them poofed out. They look unique and different.
