The Namesake Keepsake...

A few weeks ago, I went to a Just Between Friends Sale and was accosted by a man who was selling print outs of your child's name, with birth date and poem on pretty paper. He was selling them for $7 plus extra for a frame.

They were really cute, but I had a feeling I could make my own for much less. Here is the cost breakdown per 'Namesake'.

Cardstock: 25c (50% off at Michaels)
Border, cut from a scrapbook paper sheet: 59c
Frame: $1 from the Dollar Tree.

Instead of a poem, I picked a scripture for each of the girls. I hope they are something they can keep and be encouraged by when they are older.

Here are the finished products...I intend to hang them above the girls beds.
