Summer kick off last day of school frame with the Chomas Creations engraving tip

It is officially the last day of school for my kids and this year my youngest daughter just adored her kindergarten teacher.  I had started one of my frames for her when my daughter reminded  me of just how much her teacher loved butterflies, so I had to go back to the drawing board!  I'm glad though because I found these butterflies I forgot I had and now they are going to a good home!
I get these frames that are unfinished wood for $1 at Michaels.  They fit a 4x6 photo perfectly.  I then paint the sides and use Mod Podge to adhere the paper to the front of the frame.  For this one I used Core'dinations cardstock with the Chomas Creations engraving tip to etch these circles into the cardstock.  This allows the color behind to show.  A light sanding later and you have this neat look!
I use eye screws (found at the hardware store) in each of the upper corners, they screw easily into the soft wood of the frame, and then tie ribbon to that.  The butterflies were from Prima. 
I hope she likes it!!  My little Ella is just too excited to give it to her!
