Valentine's Day Flea Market Window

We've all seen these and purchased these at the Flea Market's.  How can you resist these with the chipping paint and all the character it has?

I picked this window up last year and I use it as a large picture frame. 

Hubby was *tidying* his home office and gifted me with a box of transparency film that he was going to toss out.  He asked if I could use them for anything...ding-ding-ding...of course I can! 

I've been printing out pictures on the transparency film and putting them in this window frame!

I printed these images from here and here.  I taped wrapping paper on the back.  It's hard to see, it's brown paper with a lace print (from Dollar Tree!).  Usually, I don't put paper on the back, this gives these images more dimension.

I taped each of the transparencies to the corners of the front side of the glass with double-sided clear tape.

I have printed Black & White photo's for this and it looks great.  Soon, I'll print out some Easter images!  If you have a box of transparency film hanging around - try using them!  They still sell them in the office supply stores too.  I know, because I had to buy another box of them already!  *Enjoy*
