Let it SNOW! Picture Frame {Tutorial} repost

Today I am home sick from church.  I want to craft, but since I am feeling kinda crappy, I will show you one from last year.  I hardly had ANY followers last year, so I figure you probably haven't seen it:)

This Picture Frame craft was so EASY and CHEAP!  I don't mean cheap looking, just inexpensive....

Here is what I did:

I went to Joann's and bought a 5 x7 frame for 60% off, but you probably have one laying around your house, or you could buy one at goodwill.  That's what I usually do, but I was at Joann's and Yea, I gave in to the sale.  It cost me like $5.99.

Then I went to the gift wrap section and bought a cheap Christmas gift bag.  I think it was 60% off too!  It cost me like 1.29 or something.

I went home, cut out a 5 x 7 piece of the gift bag and put it in the frame.

Now for the next step, you could do several things!  I have a Cricut, so I cut out the "Let it Snow."  You could use rub ons, cut out letters with cardstock and glue them on....there are so many possibilities!  I put my vinyl on the outside of the glass.  SOOOO EASY!

This cost me about $7.50, not counting the vinyl.  I already had it.  Not bad, huh?  This would be a great gift too!

I am putting this on my mantle.  I'm wishing for SNOW......
