Totally EZ photo frame craft, or what to do with Facebook photos

With many users posting their photos on Facebook and other social networking sites, you are probably able to stumble across a few photos from friends and relatives that you would like to frame.  Here are a few very easy photo frames that I made for gifts--each one cost around $2 or less to make with readily obtainable craft supplies.
The middle one was painted with craft paint and decorated with a pre-painted wooden word.  The left and right frames were covered with scrapbook paper.  The wooden frames are $1 or $2 dollars depending on size and were purchased at Michaels as was the wooden "Joy" which probably cost less than 50 cents.  Instructions for covering wooden frames with scrapbook paper can be found on the Team DIY blog.
I snatched two of the pictures from photos that were posted by friends and relatives on Facebook--they are going to be gifts.
