fool-proof birthday presents

Today is nana's birthday. I never fully realized (until now) how easy it is to make a birthday present for a grandparent. Seriously! And let me tell you, it's cheap too. Dirt cheap. Like, less than $5 cheap. And it takes about 5 minutes. Well, maybe 10 minutes. 15 if you want to be really really creative. Guaranteed to make the receiver teary eyed, unless you're nana, then there was probably out right crying.

Step 1: make a sign. This is the fun crafty part, but since it's from a baby it doesn't matter if it's crappy. The whole point is that the baby made it. You don't even have to be witty or long winded.

Step 2: take a picture of the baby holding the sign. If the baby is really young you can "help" them hold the sign. The sprout wanted to chew on his sign, but that just made for better pictures.

Step 3: print pictures. Since what you wanted to say was on the sign already you don't even have to pen a card.

Et, voila!


  1. That is tooo cute! I think I'm going to have to steal this idea for grampa's birthday this year.

  2. I piggy-backed the idea from my sister! It is too awesome not to do!
