A Gift Frame

Barb is here today with a personalized baby gift. These are great because they are different from the other twelve frames a new mom usually receives--these are personalized with baby's name and made to match the nursery theme. They are sweet. Here she is:

For some reason I enjoy making baby gifts. Must be all the cute papers and embellishments that catch my eye. I first started making these frames when I found one at a garage sale. I loved how it turned out and now I buy them at Michael's (with a coupon of course). They are less than $3 if you print off a 40% coupon at

To decorate, I like to use two coordinating papers and a ribbon to divide them. I first cut the paper to size and then use Mod Podge to glue it on. Then I add the ribbon using craft glue or tape. Last, I embellish with stickers and the child's name. This could also be used for a graduation or wedding gift, using the school colors or pick to match the decor.
