Secret Sister Gift


MnM needed a secret sister gift that couldn't be more than $5. I decided that since I loved my rosette frame an 11 year old might love one too. After I got approval from the diva we got to work. I used the leftover fabric and buttons that I already had. I bought a new frame and then popped on some stickers. A few months ago one of my friends found an AWESOME website that sells hair flowers for wholesale prices. We made a large purchase together so that we would only pay one shipping fee. After I had all the flowers assembled (and realized we had a bazillion) I set aside some for birthday parties. We went to our flower stash and got a few of the smaller ones to put with the gift. Since the secret sister MnM was given is older I didn't think she would want huge ones. This was a super quick little project. Since I was pretty much using up things I already had it was a minimal cost. I think it turned out to be a darling little secret sister gift!!
