Crafting the Holidays: A Quick and Easy Homemade Gift Idea

Hey, guys!  Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

Today, let’s talk homemade gift ideas.  I love the thought of putting my creative juices to work this time of year with a good ‘ole homemade gift.  Problem is, sometimes (okay maybe most of the time) I way underestimate the amount of time it takes to actually make the said gift.  This gets me into trouble and I end up rushing out to buy something Christmas Eve.  No more, my friends, no more.  I took to Pinterest in search of a cute and easy homemade gift.  Specifically, I was looking for something to make my co-workers.  Since they are all women, this made the search easier.  When I came across the inspiration photo, I knew it was the one!  It looked easy, cute, and even functional!  Score! 

You’ll need some clear frames (I used 5×7 ones from the dollar store), sticky notes in assorted colors and sizes (again, I got mine from the dollar store), ribbon (you guessed it, from the dollar store), and scrapbook paper.  First, cut the scrapbook paper to fit your frames and place the paper inside the frame.  Next, secure ribbon to the top of the frame using some tape.  I simply wrapped the ribbon around the frame, but you could tie a bow or do something fancy here if you so desired.  To give it a little something extra, I added their initial to the ribbon.  Finally, attach the sticky note pads using glue dots.  I tried tape, but that didn’t work at all.  Glue here would be the best choice.  That’s it!  Now you have a cute and functional homemade holiday gift!
