Stocking Stuffer Ideas Blog Hop


Welcome to the Stocking Stuffers Blog Hop hosted by the Janis of Pause, Dream, Enjoy! and Paper Playtime!!! If you have stumbled across this post, start at the beginning by CLICKING HERE

If you have been hopping along you should have arrived here from the talented Corri! I decided to make a super fun (AND SIMPLE....AND INEXPENSIVE) weekly menu planner.  My hubby and I love to plan our meals at the beginning of the week so that grocery shopping is simple, and thinking is minimal after a long day of work.  I was at a crop and one of the other croppers made something similar to this, and I LOVED the idea!  By using an old picture frame, you can make a super fun (and perhaps even decor matching) design for your weekly menu.  Using a dry erase marker you can then write in your menu plans for each day of the week and the glass protects your original design!  This is such a quick and simple gift idea that you can whip together with a simple photo frame, and any scraps you have at home.  Be sure to scroll down for blog candy!  I used my From My Kitchen Cricut cartridge for the die cuts.

Silver Picture Frame: 8 1/2 x 11 (Walmart)
Patterned Paper: Basics (Basic Grey)
Cardstock: Silver (Dollarama), True Black (Papertrey Ink)
Alpha Stickers: 'menu', 'days of the week' (Basic Grey), Tiny Type (Cosmo Cricut)
Die Cuts: From My Kitchen (Cricut)
