A really good friend of mine is having her baby dedicated at chuch and I wanted to give a special gift to little Quinn. Because the baby is not being baptized as that doesn't happen until the child is old enough to make that choice on his/her own accord I had a difficult time deciding what to give as a gift for this important event. Then someone reminded me that I could just make a gift with vinyl! So funny that I wasn't smart enough to think of that all by myself! : )
I have seen many people customize picture frames and thought that this just might be the perfect gift. I found a nice picture frame that had a mat inside to fit a 5x7 picture. And then I decided to include the name of the church, the date of the dedication and simply just have the rest say "To Celebrate the Dedication of Quinn Alexander Scott" and then included a professional baby picture of little Quinn. For this gift I must thank Facebook as it allowed me a chance to take one of little Quinns baby picture from my friend's photo album on her Facebook page! She can always change it out to a different picture but this picture will work in giving the gift. Because I wanted the vinyl on the backside of the glass I had to reverse the words prior to cutting them. I also used beige for the vinyl color as the mat was a deep, dark red. I think the color combinations worked out great as the inner part of the photo mat also is outlined by a beige color. Below is my finished gift!
The dedication isn't until this evening so I really hope my friend does not visit this blog until tomorrow! I just didn't want to wait that long to post the finished product! : )
