Hello everyone I am doing "home-made" presents for all my family this year. I like crafting and most of my family are musical. I bought sheet music from the local charity shop and printed designs onto the sheets. I bought frames and this is one I did earlier. Would love to know what people think. Thanks in advance.

That's lovely, Sue, a great idea.

Do you choose a piece of music that is personal to the recipient, say a favourite artist or genre? (if at all possible given you're bound by the charity shop stock). And likewise with the drawing?

Very unique and lovely. I do paper cuts for my family sometimes and the nice thing is when they're bored with it they give me back the frame and I cut something different .

You could do the same and each year put in a different one.

I love it !

What a lovely gift. I am doing little cross stitch Christmas motifs instead of gift tags.

That's very original - I like it! ? I've often felt like tearing my sheet music up hmm but much better to do something creative. Well done!
