Christmas Frame

Hi friends! I have been super busy getting ready for Christmas. I'm sure everyone else is as well. I keep thinking of things to make and give as gifts. Today I have made a really cute frame. I made two of them. One is for my mom that I am going to be putting my kids picture in and the other is for my four year old to give to her best friend who happens to live next door! I used an SVG file from my ultimate favorite place I used the Snowman Collection. There is two files that I used. I brought in the winter frame and the winter frame 5. Then I resized them both to 4 3/4 x 6 3/4. I then used my Cricut to cut out all the pieces of the frame and snowman. I deleted the eyes, mouth, scarf ends and holly. They were too small to cut for my liking. I assembled the snowman and attached it to the frame. For the scarf, I just cut the ends to make it look like tassels. I added the snowman face using a black marker and chalked the cheeks. The paper I used for the frame came from a a paper pad I had bought years ago at Wal-Mart when I first started scrapbooking. The snowman is made from scraps. I stickled the snowflake centers as well as the outside of the snowman's face. Once I attached the photo to the back, I used paperclips and attached them to the back of the frame to allow it to stand up. You could do a couple different things. I've also used magnets on the back to hang on the fridge as well. I think they are super cute!! I'd love to hear any feedback as well as any other ideas you have done for Christmas gifts.

Thanks for stopping by!
