This is my first craft post, and since it is so close to the official Christmas season (I don't truly believe that this starts until Thanksgiving has past), this is a super neat little piece I whipped up as a gift for my friend. Like so many of us she loves birds!
What you need:
Black frame (I picked mine up from the .99 store)
Paper from MyMind'sEye Wonderful Winter paper pack
Green Ribbon (purchased after Christmas last year at Target clearance for 1.50)
Directions: Using the Robin/Birdcage paper from the paper pack, I cut it to 8 1/2 x 11, which was the size of my frame. I know it's an odd size for a frame. The paper will work with an 8x10 too. I placed the paper in the frame.
Then I got out my ribbon and measured out to lengthy pieces. I stapled each at an angle in the lower right corner. Then I tied them in a bow. I trimmed the ends into Vs of a desirable length.
Voila! Present done. Less than five minutes. Less than $2 in total products. Super cute!!! I am 2 more sheets of this paper, so I am going to make one for myself, and one to sell on ETSY!!!
