So when my favorite girls offered to host a shower for me this pregnancy, I knew I wanted to try to do something similar for them.
I found the plaques at Michael's. They're a little smaller than what I have, but were also therefore cheaper. And since this wasn't the only gift I wanted to give them, I opted for that (and a 4x6 still fit on it, so all was good).
I picked up some chalk paint (which I had never used before, but liked...next time I would also get the wax finish to "age" it a little bit) and some burlap ribbon from Michael's as well. It was all coming together, but I wanted a little more flair. The buttons came from Hobby Lobby and were just what I was looking for. The little clips were also a Hobby Lobby find (I love the Spare Parts collection they carry!)
A little hot glue, so sand paper, and a super cute easel (also a Michael's find) made pretty fantastic holders for some pictures of my people!
I paired them with a Leaves candle from Bath and Body Works (my absolute favorite scent they carry and the very definition of Fall in my book). Of course I used the mess out of some coupons since all of these stores offer great deals with them :)
I love to craft, I love to give gifts, and I love these four girls with every ounce I have. They're my people and my life is so much better because I have them. I hope they enjoyed their gifts as much as I did!
