I made this frame as a gift for my boss, Michele. I am her son’s nanny and because she does so much for me I wanted to make sure that I gave her a very special Christmas gift. This frame took me less than an hour to make and I made it out of things I just happened to have scattered around my scrap space. I hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoyed making it.

Ss Tag I couldn’t send Steph’s birthday frame alone so I made this tag to go with it (although my husband is convinced that it is merely a fancy bookmark). I used most of the same materials that I used to make the frame so that they would match.I am completely obsessed with the K&Company stamps my sister bought be for my birthday so I couldn’t resist using the butterfly stamps yet again on this tag. I made the butterflies 3D so that they popped off the page, to give it some added dimension.

There are so many little details that went into making this tag, but they are difficult to see in a measly photo (especially one taken with my iphone). But nonetheless I think it turned out to be rather beautiful, but then again I’m probably not my best critic. Please let me know what you think about this tag at the end of this post by completing a quick and easy poll.

From left to right: (Left) This is a picture of both the tag and the frame that were made as a birthday for my friend Stephanie. (Middle) This is a close-up picture of the butterflies I made in 3D to give the tag an extra “pop”. (Right) This was the finished product of Steph’s gift. I picked matching wrapping paper and a cute little flower embellishment to make it girly and cutesy!
