Recently our 4th ( in April) and 5th (in July) grandchildren were born-we are loving being grandparents in our mid 40s...it means that we have enough energy to keep up with the kidlets!
Anyway, being quite the doting grandmother; I wanted to make something for each of the grandies that would be unique-but also affordable! I ended up deciding to create a framed "artwork" of their names. I chose scrapbooking paper, printed out their names in a font from the computer and then placed that over the top sheet of paper. Cutting around the printed letters with a sharp craft knife created the names in the top sheet-with a contrasting coour underneath the names then "popped".
Note to young players.....lightly tape the computer print out to the top sheet of scrapbooking paper ( on the non-visible side!) to ensure it stays put. Makes it MUCH easier to cut around the curves....don't ask how I know, I just do! ;)
A frame each from one of the bargain shops and voila!- cheap and cheerful gifts!
I can't find the photos of the 3 for the eldest boys, so I'll just show the two youngest's. :)
Any other cheap and cheerful gift ideas out there?
