A quick and easy Christmas gift idea! :)

Hi everyone :)

Julie with you here again today, and I wanted to share a quick and easy Christmas gift idea for those last minute gifts! I used Nikki's Gingerbread Land on these :)

I am sure that we ALL have wallet sized photos of our kids laying around (at least I know I do!) :) I always order those school photo packets from my daughter's daycare - and even after giving out the wallet sized ones to family members, I still end up with extras! :) So then it hit me! Why not turn those extra wallet sized photos into magnets as little Christmas gifts?!?!? :)

These are so EASY to make, I swear it took me longer to take and edit the photos for this project than it did to make them :)

Here is what I started out with :)
Wallet sized photos, Magnet buttons and Nikki's Gingerbread Land papers! :)

I used my Cricut "Storyboard" cartridge to cut out the background paper and accent frame :)

Then I adhered the photo between the background and the accent frame :)

Then I glued a Magnet Button on the back :)

And just to keep a record, I put my daughters name, age and month/year on the back of each one :)


And I added some of Nikki's Gingerbread Land stickers to the front - and here is the finished magnets on my refrigerator :) 




Thanks for stopping by! And don't forget our DT Call :) Nikki is AMAZING to work for...I would love to see you try out!! :)
