Christmas Frame as a DIY Christmas gift

At last weekend's Christmas gift class I also made these great Christmas frames with my lovely group of girls.  Everyone made one that looked pretty much the same as this - although some people chose to do it landscape rather than portrait... I think both of them looked great.

Its easy to do... just use a frame purchased from any discount store, remove the backing and carefully slide out the glass. I stamped the flourish on the glass directly with White Stazon, and then put it aside to dry while I stamped and cut my snowflakes with the Big Shot.  The letters were also die cut, but from red glimmer paper - although you could use whatever colour you have on hand. I used a little ribbon to finish it off. Then I attached the letters and snowflakes to the glass with glue dots. To finish off the frame, I used a hot glue gun to reattach the glass back into the frame. Voila!  It's done :-)

(I'm so sorry it was a bit tricky to photograph.. and you get to see my outdoor furniture reflected in the glass!)

See... Christmas gifts can be quick, easy, AND effective!
