DIY Baby Shower Gift: a photograph for each month for the first year

I thought I'd take a tiny little break from food blogging and share with you a project I made for my friends' baby shower. I wanted to give my friends something personal and handmade on top of a few cute onesies and a blanket.

Here's what I did:

1) purchase a fun picture frame

2) make inserts with "welcome to the world," "1 month"........... "11 months," and "1 Year!" written on them

3) decorate each insert

Once the baby is born, I hope my friends will take a picture of her with the frame close by to document the first year of her life.

At the end of the 1st year, they can place one of the photos in the frame.

I'm soooo pleased with how this came out, and my friends loved it too!

I'll get back to food in the next post :)

This is the sweetest gift. If you sold these on etsy, I would buy them for my friends.

How much would you pay??? :)

Hmm... depends on your materials costs, but maybe $25ish? They're very cute! And I have no artsy skills at all.
