Pinterest Project: Completed

It is not often that I find myself at the finished end of a Pinterest project!  I was actually really happy with the way this one ended up - which is not often the way things work for me! 
This was my inspiration...

My goal was to eliminate the copious numbers of sticky note to do lists all over my desk at school.  They are constantly getting lost in the paper catastrophe that is living on my desk.  I have never figured out how to tame the mess, regardless of how hard I try!

Anyways, I began my project with a cheap frame from Hobby Lobby.  I loved the flower details, but I wasn't sure my flowers with fabric would look right... my last ones I tried like this looked like a weird cinnamon bun.  So, I figured that I would try another swing at felt flowers, like I made on my wreath earlier this summer that can be found here.  I originally found the tutorial at a delightful blog called Craft Snob. You can find their flower tutorials here.  They have a ton of different types -  I tried the easiest looking ones :)  I cut out my letters on the Silhouette and stuck them to a piece of cardstock using my Xyron sticker maker... It was really simple and took me less than 30 minutes all together!

Anyways, the final project came out really cute and I can't wait to take it to school tomorrow!
