Ribbons and Bows and Camo Clothes...

Today I'd like to share with you a picture frame I made for a gift. My sister-in-law asked me if I could make a frame for her with this cute saying "Ribbons and Bows and Camo Clothes, that's what little girls are made of." I had never heard of the saying before, but it totally fits my niece Kayla! She is 9 years old and likes the typical girly things, but she also wears camo clothes and is interested in hunting.

I ended up making the frame and giving it to her as a Christmas gift. I painted the frame in a sage green. I used a scallop circle punch and camouflage paper to make camo flowers with button centers. The saying was designed and cut from black vinyl using my Cricut machine. I made it with a ribbon hanger so she could hang it on the wall if she wanted to. Otherwise they could cut the ribbon off and use it as a traditional picture frame.

Kayla and her mom both really liked her gift! And everyone really liked the saying and thought it fit Kayla well. You can find some cute t-shirts online with that saying. Have a great day!


P.S. I can also make this frame to order or make it into a wall sign if interested. Just contact me through my blog profile or Etsy shop.
