Dressing it up; Part 2

This was one of the gifts I made this yesterday for
my lovely sister-in-law, Anna!

I found this cute shabby chic frame at this adorable place called KNB Consigments!
I got it for a steal, since the glass was already broken.

I took some cute paper & cut it to same measurement as the frame.

Then I found these pre-made flowers that I found at Walmart recently for only $2.00.

Took some 3D glue dots, to make the flowers pop up.
You can find these at A.C.Moore & Michaels for about $3.00.
Then I added a cute quote about friendship below to the flower!

I've really been getting into card making recently as well!

I just think it's so much special when you make cards or gifts, instead of buying something brand new. It shows piece of your heart, when you put so much love into a gift.

Reduce, Reuse & Recycle!
You know how I love to reuse things & make something new out of it!
Plus it helps our landfill right?

Recently I saw on Live View Studio's blog about going green!
You can view their post here; & check out their awesome pictures while your there!

Isn't that such a cute & clever idea??

I came home from shopping yesterday & realize I was out of wrapping paper!
I remember seeing on Live View Studio's blog about using
a paper bag, & thought hey I could do that!

I took all the handles from my Whole-foods bags & made a bow with it.

Comment & share on how you like to dress things up or reduce & reuse!


  1. Nice! Glad it was an inspiration :)

  2. I loved all my gifts (and even the wrapping)!! Thank you so much. The card is so lovely as well. =)
