Framed Holiday Gifts

There are so many wonderful holiday posts on projects going on over at the Silhouette Plus forum. My dh wanted a hand-made gift for a drawing at his work Christmas party. He works with all women. Kelly from Finding Time to Create posted some framed holiday projects she did for her neighbors gifts. She bought all of her frames at the Dollar store. Woohoo! for the Dollar store.

My dh went to Target and bought this one because he refused to drive across town to go to the Dollar store and I was too busy doing holiday stuff. This frame was only $10.00 at Target but I hate the way the back is made. It was very hard to get off.

With some pretty decorative cardstock I made backgrounds for the 6 areas and them on some white textured cardstock I simply cut the designs to fit in each area. Easy as can be and my dh loved it.

Next, one of the ladies posted a link to a site where a tutorial for making 3D pinecones was shared. I had a shadow box frame laying around so I decided to make another holiday framed piece to use as another gift. The frame did smash some fo the elements a little bit but, I think it still turned out nice.

If you have a couple of more little gifts you need to get; look around the house and use some of those frames we all have laying around and come up with your own special holiday framed piece. These projects were fun and easy. Off to go look for some more frames. I'm on a roll.


  1. So glad I found your blog. Just bought a Silhouette Cameo and I'm feeling quite frustrated with it right now. I'm sure your videos and blog will help me learn to love it as so many crafters seem to.

  2. Those are beautiful, Debbie! I've been giving out framed vinyl or printed art like that this year (cleared out one type of collage frame from my Dollar Tree store).

    I've been looking for a good pine branch; did you make that one? (I saw the same blog post with the pinecone tutorial.)

    And happy birthday!

  3. Thank you Gilda and Kelly.

    Kelly your framed art pieces were such a great inspiration andmotivation for me to get to crafting. The lady who won it at the Christmas went crazy over it. Kelly, I did make the pine branch and will be happy to email it to you. I'm on my way to do this now. Hugs, Debbie
