Frame it! Framed Stickers for Adorable & Affordable Holiday Decor!


My first post I told you I'm not crafty,  I'm really not.  Thanks to Pinterest, I've been crafting away lately.   Who am I?!  I like the new me! 

Last night, while at Marshall's, I found these beautiful 3D gold reindeer stickers for making cards and scrapbooking.  Since I'm not a scrapper or card maker, I didn't know what I could do with them.  After walking around the store with the stickers in my hand, the 3D snowman I made the other night popped in my head...LIGHT BULB MOMENT...I can FRAME them!!!  

That's how my night started.  By the time I got home, I had 15 frames, tons of 3D stickers and scrapbooking paper.  Below is the end result.  

I'm pretty proud of myself, they turned out really cute - and they were cheap! Most of them cost around $5 to make and only a few minutes to put together. I bought the majority of the frames for $3, two cost $7.  All the glass was removed in the frames, except for the cardinal.

Here are my supplies...

So easy!

These took minutes to make!

These make great Christmas gifts!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
