Countdown to Christmas Day Three. . .

Here's the next gift idea on a budget.
How's this for thrifty. I found this paper frame at the dollar store, it's nice and sturdy made of think cardboard. I just cut out another frame from my paper pack, wrapped it with the floss to give it a little more pizazz, and cut some of the patterns from the left over paper to give it a more 3D look. If you look close, you'll see I cut the center a little large, at first I thought I would have to use another sheet of paper (and waste this one), but when I laid it on the frame it actually gave the illusion of a matte, so I left it. Sometimes mistakes work out better than you think.
