Thought I'd update this project since its been five years. Overall the project held up over the course of time, but some of the credit card pieces fell off over time. Originally I used Craft Glue which worked on a majority of the plastic pieces. Around ten or so flaked off, I'm guessing from not enough glue, so I reapplied them with Gorilla Glue. If I were to make this project again, I would go with the stronger glue off the bat so I wouldn't have to worry about things falling off. Its annoying when you can't find the missing credit card piece so you have to wait for one to expire to fix. Luckily, I kept a small stash of chopped up credit card pieces because you never know, right? But that's not most people.
Also, in five years, I've learned how to improve photo quality with PicMonkey. Exact same picture but the top one was slightly altered using the free options available on the PicMonkey site. The original is below.

Spun off from an idea posted on Totally Green Crafts. For the full tutorial on how to make the credit card photo frame visit Craftstylish here.

Project Cost: $0 (wouldn't Dave Ramsey be proud? or he'd want me to sell it and apply it to the Debt Snowball!)

Not a paid promotion, I just think its worth mentioning:
