Teachers Gift #3: Framed Christmas Tree Printable

Thank you, pinterest.com, for making my teacher gifts this year the simplest ever.
I'm coming to really {heart} you.

We gave this gift to the kindergarten teacher and the teachers at church. It was inexpensive and simple and practically perfect in every way.

A scripture quote in the shape of a Christmas tree and a bag of goodies. How did I do it? Well, the bag of goodies is pretty self-explanatory, though I filled it with my favorite new find -- Chocolate Covered Blueberries and pomegranates made by Brookside (available at Costco and our local Safeway store, hopefully yours too) and Cinnamon Roasted Almonds, made by hers truly, Five Real Mom, Cheri (see here).

Making the picture was awesomely simple. First I found the image on pinterest.com Here it is for you. Click to enlarge, then find the text above the image that says "full size 1280x1600" and click to bring up the full image. Then right click save it to your computer.

Open a word document and insert the picture. Resize it to what you want. I did a 4x6 dimension. Print in color on cardstock.

For the mat, I bought gold glitter paper from the scrapbook section at Joanns (for 59 cents), and cut it to 5x7. Then I glued the Christmas tree directly on to the gold paper, put it in a $3 frame from Walmart, wrapped it, done.

And it looks so great on my mantle, too, as an 8x10.
