Being a college student, money is often tight- or non existant thanks to those lovely college loans. This year, I still wanted to give gifts to my family because I like to show them how much I love them! So I chose the road less traveled and made my gifts this year- starting with Mom
White Shadow box (11×15 I think is what I used)
2 sheets of 12×12 scrapbook paper
Stickers- “family” “we are blessed” and “loving life” are the stickers I chose
Ribbon and bling
3 (or as many as you want) pictures
and mine has little bird ornaments- I thought it was a nice touch
DIRECTIONS: I think its pretty explanitory, I didn’t glue anything except the photo pages, and everything else is strategically pinned in… and I think it turned out pretty well!
The Next gift I made was for Grandma Beebee because she’s been so especially generous and helpful with my college years needs 🙂
chalk- or chalkboard markers
DIRECTIONS: paint plaque with the chalkboard paint and let it dry. I suggest atleast three coats! once dry, hot glue- or superglue- clothespins to desired location. Use the chalk/markers to write a message- I chose “Grandkids make life grand” and when finally done I wrote each grandchild’s name on the clothespins and put a wallet of each where it belonged.
