Altered Picture Frame

My friend Bridgette is pregnant and I made this frame for her baby Millie who will be here in April. Bridgette has Nolan who is 4, but she is super excited to have a little girl! She is going a bit crazy over pink, so I thought she would like all the pink and the hearts! I can't wait to give this to her at her shower this month!

First I painted the frame white - this frame took 3 coats!!! Next, I used the Cricut to cut out hearts of different shapes and sizes out of pink scraps I had lying around. I then used Modge Podge to adhere the hearts and buttons. I used the Cricut again to cut a stencil for the name. After painting the name, I tied three different ribbons around the side of the picture opening.

I really enjoy making gifts for people I care about! What about you? What altered art projects ahev you made as gifts?
