    Thank you to all for the various files.

    I used a similar layout to XMR1's on page 2 for my daughters secret Santa. The limit is supposed to be £20 but I think I went a little over, but not by much. The poster was ordered from overseas and the frame was a cheap one from HMV.

    A more professional frame would have been better as the cheap frame would not take thick frame card stock. I had to use thin card. Also, I could not find any of suitable size so ended up joining together two smaller sheets. Hence the need to move the movie poster to the left hand side as I stuffed up the join and had to cover it up.

    I would have preferred using thicker card stock for the movie stills, but in order to keep costs down I used what I had handy. I also miss judged the allowance for the frame so they are not perfectly central.

    The letter was printed on parchment like paper then aged using tea bags. I damped down the edges then lightly tore to make it look more worn

    I'm not 100% happy with it, but then I can see all the mistakes. I'm sure she'll be thrilled.

    I noticed that a lot of the symbols were runic in origin, the film is German and (1922) and given the political situation in Germany at the time
