It is project time; both projects were gifts that I made for friends.
I Love making gifts for others. I also like finding ways to make great gifts inexpensively. I don’t think you have to have a lot of money to give something beautiful.
My friend Becky recently had a birthday. A small group of girls took her out to lunch, and I wanted to bring her a little something extra to help celebrate her special day.
I had a frame from Michaels that I picked up for $1. I used some scrapbook paper, ribbon and flower embellishments that I had on hand.
I love how the ribbon says Families are Forever. It was my inspiration. It matched the colors in her living room perfectly.
I made her monogram in Photoshop and printed it out on linen paper.
It was an inexpensive gift; but also a thoughtful one.
I also made this fun gift for my friend Amanda. I hosted a baby shower for her in my home a few months ago, and I wanted her gift to be really special.
I found this frame at Hobby Lobby. It matches her baby furniture perfectly. I was inspired by Pottery Barn art, and new the baby’s monogram would be the perfect modern touch.
I love how it turned out. I want one for my house.
