Strips of type photo corners on ATC's

So I don't know if this is an original idea or I have been reading so many good craft books, all the cool things I see in them just percolate around and then at some random moment an idea pops into my mind and I just have to make it.

My (or one I've seen) idea is to use strips of type as photo corners. In this case for use on ATCs.
I went through a magazine and cut out strips that either had an interesting word or phrase somewhere within it.
I then picked a photo and background paper to go along with the phrase.
I then simply folded back the ends of the strips and glued them to the back of the ATC. I like how the photo floats around under the strips. It can be a very random process just to see what comes from a magazine and how what I had in my "images to craft with box" came together.
