Hey, I actually MADE something!Posted: August 25, 2011
My boss loves handmade gifts (or at least she claims to) and she also loves The Help (book and movie). She’s really, REALLY hard to buy for and her birthday is today so I decided to make her a frame with a nice saying inside it. Hope she likes it – I want to keep it for myself!
I used one of those $1 frames from Michaels, scrapbook paper I already had, my trusty printer and one million fonts I have, and embellishments I already had. I’d guess my total cost was $2.00 or so? I knew my trips to Tuesday Morning would pay off big someday, and at midnight when the frame needed a little something extra, I remembered all those freaking tins of flowers I got for a steal 2 years ago. Yeah, 2 years ago. What of it?
I also saved the file as a pdf in case anyone else wanted to print it out. I don’t know about you, but I buy tons of these frames when I see them. I’ve probably got 12 right now just waiting to be prettied up.
