I used a frame that I purchased at a craft store (can't remember which one, but I am pretty sure it was JoAnn's - the great thing about this one was that it was already painted white - yay! Saved me a step!) I simply shopped my stash of scrapbook papers, and found one that matched perfectly with the bedding. I used my trusty Mod Podge to apply the paper, and then sanded the edges off a bit so they would look more flush with the edge of the frame. It looked sort of plain, so I made a couple of fabric flowers. If you don't know how to make these, search "fabric flower tutorials" on Google and you'll find a ton of them! I added a few feathers and some tulle (the key ingredients in all things girly, in my humble opinion) and voila! A cute frame - for under $3 or so!
So yesterday, I shared my sweet little cupcake baby gift (if you missed it, click here), and promised to share what else I was sending to my sweet friend "down under" for her baby's nursery. She chose the "Penelope" bedding from PBK, and I wanted to come up with something to match it. Unfortunately, my budget was pretty tiny, so I used some things I had on hand to make a sweet frame for her baby girl's picture. I think it turned out really pretty!
Next, I decided that I needed to send my friend's older daughter a little gift (after all, a soon-to-be big sister needs a little recognition!), and once I found these A-DORABLE Easter chicks at Hobby Lobby I knew
It looked too plain for me, so I had to add another fabric flower and some little felt leaves that my mom made for me - thanks Mom!
Look at ALL that cuteness!!!!!
The finishing touch was a little "chick" onesie and another little bib, rolled up and placed in a clear cellophane bag. It's all in the presentation, don't you think?
