I love this idea of turning old passport stamps into framed pieces of art. The blog, A Brooklyn Limestone in Progress, posted a ‘how-to’ guide which makes the whole project seem both easy for amateur artists like myself and cheap (supplies totaled just five bucks).

Here’s an example of a similar idea (a framed postcard):
