Baby Name Plate

I made this for a friend of mine. Here are the details of it. I found the "perfect" frame at goodwill for 2 dollars (amazing - I know!!). Then I bought 1/4 of a yard of blue and white stripped flannel- I could of used scrapbooking paper but I didn't want a seam. The fabric cost 99 cents (flannel is a cheaper fabric). Then I bought a cute painted wooden frog from Hobby Lobby-59 cents. I used my cricut to cut the name in white foam. I have never cut foam with the cricut before. It was a bit tricky and next time I will multi -cut it. Then I cut the shadow of the name in brown. I used some ribbon I had on hand to bring it all together and hot glued it down. I think the end product turned out super cute. Total cost about 4.50
