Photos in a Frame

This was tricky. I bought the tiny silver photo frame charm attached to a bracelet at the local charity shop. The frame when closed measures 15mm x 11mm so the photos needed to be really small. I opened a word document and copied several family tree photos onto it then saved it. I then copied and pasted it into My Pictures as a JPEG file. When I printed it out as a 4"x6" glossy photo, the photos were small enough to use. I chose Great-Aunt Laura from my Dad's side and Great-Uncle Albert from my Mum's side and trimmed them to fit the frames. I used family photos because I didn't want to infringe on anyone's copyright. I have to admit that they will look great on a 1:12 scale dressing table or sideboard.  The larger photos can go into bigger frames later........maybe.......

These photos are all printed on a single 6"x4" glossy photo sheet. They are pretty much full-size.
This photo frame measures just under 3/4 inch long by 1/2 inch wide when closed.
