Cooking With Cricut Challenge #84 - Teacher Appreciation Projects

Happy Wednesday, everyone! Welcome to another fun challenge over at COOKING WITH CRICUT ! This week's challenge is all about teachers! We all made something that we could give to a special teacher in our lives.  I chose a home decor piece - a frame that I took the glass out of and framed a sentiment. My particular project doesn't have a school "feel" to it so it could easily be adapted to a different special someone who isn't a teacher.
I used the Florals Embellished Cricut cartridge and cut this and the layer at 4.18". I wrapped some lace ribbon around the backing before putting it back in the frame, tied a bow and stuck some stick pins through the bow and glued some paper flowers to them. Easy, huh? :-)  I embellished the frame, the image and the paper flowers with Stickles and Liquid Pearls! I use these all the time! 

Here are some close-ups:
