How is this for a Gift?

Well its that time of year again and I have come up with an idea for the girls teachers gifts...last year I made some Christmas baubles......this year I wanted to do something different but that wouldn't take a lot of time as I am seriously short of it just now!!
So I found these little frames in Ikea ...3 in a pack...and came up with this....

I painted the frame with white paint and then used Walnut Stain to distress it all over...then using some scraps covered the front and distressed some more!  I used my Timmie flower die and some little flowers and skeleton leaves to embellish the corner.
Do you think it is an okay thing to give??
Any Teachers out there would this be something that you would like for your desk? Or should I just make Baubles again?

Hi Jane, it's gorgeous. If I was a teacher I'd be more then happy to receive this. Gorgeous papers & fab use of tattered flowers. I'm a bit stuck for ideas this year as it's Mackenzie's first year of having a male teacher.
Any ideas?
