I found a really neat inexpensive gift idea on Women Living Well blog before Christmas. I LOVED the idea and wanted to make this for my parents! Being the procrastinator that I am, I waited until DECEMBER 23 to get it together. By the time I cut out the letters, took the pictures, got the pictures printed, and found the frames at Michael's, it was Christmas Eve! This just shows how easy these cool picture frames really are! We even made one for my brother since he's the uncle to all 4 of the grandchildren.
For my brother and sister-in-law, we spelled out "McCarty."
We spelled out "Grammy" and "PawPaw" for my parents.
The suggestions on the Women Living Well blog said to print the pictures in black and white, so you don't have to worry about coordinating colors. And I matted the pictures with this cool 4x6 black cardstock that I found at Michael's. Made the work even easier!
Our other inexpensive gift for the family was homemade ice cream kits and homemade hot cocoa kits.
The boys made these for our extended family. We put all of the items in a plastic shoebox lined with Christmas tissue paper.
