Default Cheap ideas of things to frame?

I have several picture frames that I bought for my bedroom to display art in. I have looked into getting some prints done but not happy with how much it would cost, and right now I really dont know what direction I want to go in as far as the wall art and dont really have the time to takes picture for the frames. I was thinking of maybe framing fake plant leaves, or place mats. Does anyone else have any great cheap ideas?

I saw them frame the mirrors in the bathrooms on HDTV and it looked fantastic.

I like browsing magazines and finding cool stuff to frame.
I have several small frames that hang in a row with pics of different flowers I cut out to fit the frames.
I also like to use fabric.

If the frames are interesting and are in a variety of designs, you can hang a grouping of empty frames on the wall.

Thanks for the great ideas everyone. I went to the craft store and bought some really pretty scrap book paper which is perfect because one of the prints I needed to be a 12x12. :-)
