Just a little lunch time craftin'. . .

I work in a small, small town and there's not a whole lot to do there.

So, most of the time I catch up on my blog buddies, facebook, etc. during my lunch hour.

Well not today, because last night I stopped by the Dollar Tree and found a few goodies.

So, I decided today during lunch that I was gonna make a little somethin', somethin'.


and this is what I did...




(Ignore the wonkiness of the pic, apparently I am a bit lopsided)

I found the white hanging frame at the Dollar Tree, messed around in my Word program, found a font and size I liked and made our monogram.

Then I printed it out, cut it to fit and VOILA!

A cute framed monogram!


Super easy!

I think I may even change out the ribbon out, with some cute black and white ribbon that I have in my stash.



Gotta love the dollar tree and easy projects!

Go check out Wendy at The Shabby Nest for more frugal ideas! :)

That would make an awesome Christmas gift. I can see it on top of a wedding gift too. Wow, totally perfect.

Found you through Dollar Store Crafts... this is so stinkin' cute! You could even do it in sweet baby colors for a baby shower gift! What a good idea!

What font did you use? I like this one and it would save me lots of time searching. Thanks.
