Scraps left over from other projects
Alphabet template or die cut letters
Embellishments of your choice
Ruler and pencil from your toolbox
I used what I have at home, I can't spend money right now. With planning a move, I would rather use up all the stuff I can before I move it!!! With the set of initials to the right - I started with the colors first from the scrap pile I have. I used my CTMH alpha template to create the initials and added a bit of embellishments... When I get the frame (have you seen some of them at the Dollar Store), it will have a small bow and flower on the frame itself, or a decoration of some sort - as in the pictures above!
I love how each of the examples above are different and have a different look to them and how they can coordinate depending on the room they are placed in. I am sure I will do something different with some of the ones I am doing - like add a picture or a charm to make it special and specific for the person receiving it!
Look at your scraps at what you have that is perfect for what you want to create! Since I don't have any type of a die cut machine, I have to use what I have available to me. That is on my list of things I need and want, but not able to get at the moment! Don't worry about spending money - just look at what you have right now! It's the thought and the idea that makes it all worth while, not the money you spend on the item! I hope you have fun making a few of these...I know I am enjoying them, and can't wait to go get the frames I need to put them in! What a great gift, personalized to the person receiving the gift in the first place!
