They were so much fun to make with my Cricut. I will post a few that I made when I get home.
Here is one that I made for my friend Staci's son, Connor. The photo is a little dark, but the paper is a soft green and blue and has some little baby faces on it planted like carrots. I added some button brads between the C and O, and the O and R.
I found the frames at Wal-Mart. They are the ones that hold 2 4x6 photos side by side in a mat. I believe they were 2 for $6!
There are lots of little cuts for this project that you will need. I tried to get all the papers together and then cut them, set them aside, and then cut my letters.

I used a purple glue stick to assemble the pieces and then adhered them to my background. Some had some added hardware to dress them up at little.
