Teacher Appreciation Subway Art

My biggest little guy is wrapping up his first year of Kindergarten tomorrow. Seems like not too long ago I was writing about his first day - boy does time fly!

Nathan was blessed this year with an amazing teacher who poured a lot into him and helped him walk through this first year of school as the youngest child in his class. She has had nothing but positive things to say about him and has helped him grow and stretch in new, wonderful ways. I wracked my brain to come up with a gift worthy of all her hard work and decided on something that I hope speaks to the beauty of her teaching.
I started by printing off this subway art I found over at Today's Fabulous Finds, after inserting his teacher's name first by using Word. I put it in one of the zillions of frames we had laying around and had a great base for my picture. In fact, you could really stop at this step if you wanted.
I wanted to jazz it up a bit though so I dug through my craft disaster area supplies and found these chipboard letters that I had picked up on clearance at Michaels awhile back.
I found one of each letter and glued them around the outside of the frame to make an alphabet border.
Finally, I created some small Ric Rac Roses courtesy of this tutorial from The Ribbon Retreat Blog and attached them to two of the corners using hot glue.
All done! A beautiful wall hanging for a more-than-deserving teacher.
