You did a great job! Framing can be nerve-wracking, especially when you make that first cut!

One thing that really upped my stitch-framing game are these self-stick mounting boards. It keeps the fabric nice and smooth under the frame. I noticed that after some time in a frame, and sometimes right away, the aida would kinda get slouchy, so I found these that keep the fabric in place and make a huge difference. So easy to use, too!

I don't particularly like hoops for framing. I use this type of sticky mounting board and regular frames, possibly from thrift shops or eBay. Wrap excess fabric to the back, or cut if off flush with the edge if the frame hides it well enough.

Typically you just use long stitches to "lace" the edges of the fabric tightly across the back of whatever it is being mounted on. For gifts framed in hoops you can sew or glue on a felt circle to cover the back tidily and to protect the wall.

Material for counted thread types of embroidery is much cheaper bought as large pieces. Other embroidery does fine on most closely woven fabrics (but preferably one where you can massage accidental needle holes into invisibility). Pre-shrink it if necessary -- unless you frame the piece under glass it may need some sort of wash/wipe in future.

If you are spending lots of inspiration and lots of hours on a piece, buying good fabric is justified. An evening embroidering is still a very cheap evening compared with many other hobbies or ways of spending your time.

HERE is a pretty good option. When I worked at a frame shop, people would come in with their cross-stitch and we would use self-adhesive boards like this. If I were you, I would find a self-adhesive board that is approx 1" smaller than your paper, so the edges of the paper would still show. Alternatively, you could just custom cut a piece of foam core and use white glue.

I guess it's called a press on board. I had the hardest time peeling off the protective paper and had to reglue it together and wait overnight, but after that it worked well. I think this link will work I hope I did it correctly https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B0062JIAIM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_t1_aqNiDbS06EZTN

When I did crosstich years ago I would buy this sticky board thing to mount it. I'm talking over 20 years ago so I don't remember if that was its intended use or not.

It was thin but fairly sturdy, iy was sticky enough to hold for framing but it was forgiving if you needed to reposition your work.

Check in the framing department of your craft store.

Edit: sticky board
