This Is As Crafty As I Get

I was looking through some pictures today and found some of the cute little gifts I gave my school buddies for Christmas.  It's a little late, I know.  But hey, better late than never.  I always have a hard time figuring out what to give that people will enjoy.  I was on Pinterest and saw these little cuties and I decided I would give it a try.  Hop on over to Paper Wings to see the post where I got my idea.

Here are how mine turned out:

These were pretty easy and super fun to make!

Here is what I used to make them:

Clear 5 x 7 frames (I got mine at Wal-Mart.)
Post-It Notes (I bought mine in a 10-pack at Sam's Club.)
Double-sided tape
The rest of the items came from Hobby Lobby in the scrapbook section:
Scrapbook paper (I used 2 sheets for all the gifts.)
Ribbon scraps
Scrapbook stickers

Once you have the supplies they are easy to put together.

1.  Cut the scrapbook paper to fit in the frame.

2. Attach post-it notes to frame using double-sided tape.

3.  Tie ribbon around frame.  My mom helped me tie the bows since tying pretty bows doesn't seem to be my forte.

4.  Attach stickers or any other embellishments you choose.

Everyone seemed to like them.  I wish I had made an extra one for me to put on my desk at school to give me a little glimpse of spring!
