Thrifty Gifting

Friday, May 24, 2013


Don't you just love when a gift can be made for under $10?
 
I call this one a "thrifty gifting project". My mom wanted a shadowbox frame for her office. I found this double framed one on the clearance aisle at Michael's.
 
And I'm so addicted to the Moxie Fab World challenges that I'm linking this one up to the 350 Cards & Gifts Week: The Gift Challenge.
 
 
I dressed it up with paper from the GCD Studios Indian Summer collection. I also added baby embellishments. My Lifestyle Crafts die-cuts came in handy too.
 
 
The gift was not complete until I added a cute photo of my nephew Tristan. He is modeling his new ducky hat. Love this circle sentiment too.



I hope you guys have a great Memorial Day weekend!
