DIY Simple Elegant Name Frame Gift

I made this as a gift for my little sister.  I bought an inexpensive frame (probably $3) that was matted for two 4×6 photos and got rid of the mat.  I used the insert to measure the cut for the background paper.  The letters were cut at 4″ using the Plantin School Cartridge.  I used the Serenade cartridge to cut the vases at 3″.  My sister loves pink, but I know it won’t match her room, so I used the black to mat my cuts so that it would tie into her bedroom decor (teenagers!).  Hope ya like it!!!

I did use my Cricut, but if you don’t have one you can use stencils and cut it out with a razor blade.

I like it! did you use a cricket or something to cut the paper?
