    I did a search and didn't see any posts on this, so if anyone has tried to make this, let me know! I'm going to give it a shot.
    It seems like it would be easy, popsickle sticks glued together, leave space for a photo to put in it, glue a magnet on the back so it can go on the refrigerator, and then decorate the frame however you want! I'm thinking blue feathers on the bottom for the ocean, paint the frame and write PV 2009at the top. The guests can put a photo from the trip in it.
    I got on this kick because I saw the DIY ones on OT and the reviews weren't good on them, and thought this way is definitely inexpensive and more personal! I can't wait to get the supplies and get going! I have a 20% michaels coupon, so I can use that!

      I haven't done this but it sounds like a really cute idea! Sounds easy to do and I'm sure your guests will love it. I'd love to see pics if you decide to make them.

        Maybe you could get some Bamboo that would be a cool wood to use.

          Ooh I agree- bamboo would look awesome. I have seen some nice craft wood at Hobby Lobby, too. Good luck! Post a pic when you make one so we can see how it turns out!

            also, one other thing to consider is how these diy frames would survive the trip to and from Puerto Vallarta...
