Secret Santa...

This week the teacher's at my school have been doing Secret Santa...each day has had a theme for guiding you in your gift giving. We set a $25 limit for the week! It has been soooo much fun! For my "something red" day, I wanted to make a cute little recipe card holder {or photo holder} for my giftee

I purchased a small home decor plaque at Wally World for $3.97, a small table top easel for a buck, I used scrapbook paper and a strip of material that I already had on hand. I mod podged the paper to the plaque...scuffed up the edges a tad with my sanding block...created one of those darling fabric rosettes{added a touch of ribbon and a pearl gem} and used E6000 to attach a bulldog clip.... I love how it turned out!



My
"Something Red"





I found some really cute recipe cards for Christmas at ishareprintables.com that I printed on cardstock and created a little note that read "A little something red for you to hang a recipe card or a photo instead" haha! I know I am such a poet...
