{Simple} Graduation Gift Idea!

Need a quick, and CuTe Graduation Gift Idea?!! 

 Here is a FuN DIY gift idea that I made for the {Graduating Girly-s} in my class at church.  I LOVE this quote...and thought it would be I decided to turn it into framed art.'s what I did: 

 First I bought some plain ol'  8x10 black frames from Walmart ...removed glass...and spray painted them white.  Then after they were dry...I took the edge of some scissors...and scraped the edges of the frame so the white paint would come off...and expose the black.  {love the shabby chic look!}  Then sprayed a coat of clear spray paint over to seal...

... then replaced glued some simple fabric rosettes to the bottom corner...

...and added the quote from President Monson.

So SiMpLe {inexpensive} and CuTe!

Would ya like to make your own??!!
