Nameplate for a teenager

 I like to make personalized gifts for all the kids whose birthday parties Kriti is invited to...I was at a complete loss about what to make for my neighbor's teenage daughter (I had already gifted her a scrapbook last year)....so I came up with a nameplate for her room...I hope she likes it.
And here the nameplate all wrapped up.
Linking upto: Itsy Bitsy anything goes challenge - the background PP and alphas for "room" are from Itsy Bitsy.

Personalized Baby Photo Frame

Even though I have been MIA from my blog for a long time I have been crafting regularly, mostly on various home improvement/decor DIY projects, custom orders and personalized gifts. I am just a beginner when it comes to home decor DIY (have been working on making my own curtains, fitted sheets, tea light holders and so on). I believe most of my DIY projects are not good enough to share here.....might start sharing some once I get better. Will be sharing a few of the custom orders too in the coming weeks...now onto the baby photo frame.
I started out with this cheap looking metal 4x6" store bought photo frame ...
and converted it to this using washi tape, 3-D chipboard stickers and a few embroidered butterflies.
applied a generous coat of Mod Podge all over the washi tape for protection.
And here is the package all set to be gifted to my little neighbour......for the packaging I've taken a plain brown paper bag and stamped baby elephants on it....love the end result! 
Thanks for visiting!
