Christmas Wall Decor

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!!!
