Belated Chirstmas gift...



I have actually finished this gift for Jamie...for Christmas. Now all I need to do is take it over to her today... (hopefully before she sees it here) Each framed letter is her last name. Each frame would be hung from a black ribbon that is attached. They would would hang in the correct order to spell the family name. I had a lot of fun making this and I really want one for my own family!

I had thought about "attaching" the frames together, creating a long 5 spaced frame, but when I opened the package and realized they already had a ribbon attached I thought that hanging them individually would be cute as well. This was really EASY to make and very inexpensive. I actually got the frames at Target for $2.50....for a 3-pack! They are a 4x4 size and they came in white and black. The only "hard" part was the frames are not very deep so I actually could not put the press board backing back on....so I just neatly taped each "page" inside of the frame. I think they turned out pretty good.
What do you think??
