Cheap, quick and easy

Now that I have your attention! Ha Ha. No NOT Me! I am not that type of girl.

I thought I would share a little something with you. There are always last minute gifts needed it seems to come at the worst time. Like when we are broke. Paid all the bills and nothing extra for such things. Your daughter's best friends Mom is having a birthday and she has taken the girls to dance everyday for 2 months while you work. That kind of thing.
I am always on the hunt for things that I can whip up quick. Can be made cheaply and easily.
I found these frames at the dollar store. I bought three. Plain and boring but so many things you can do.

I often fill with card stock frames and use rub on's on the front.
I happen upon these vellum sheets at the craft store the other day. They are so very neat. I bought three of them for about 49 cents each.

Now look how neat they look all done. These were the perfect size for these frames. It took about 2 minutes to cut the bottom bar code off and slip it into the frame. NOw I know they aren't prim, but a lot of folks out there that like just simple stuff. Perfect.

So I have THREE great gifts that cost under 5.00 for all three. Can't beat that with a stick.

Hint* grandparents love these with new shots of the kids.
Have a wonderful day my friends.
