This has been my teacher gift for the last 4 years. I love it because it is so quick and easy to make. I use whatever wood I have laying around and change the layout of the quote to fit my board.
I start with whatever wood I have sitting around the house. I have used squares and rectangles.
I gave the edges a rough sand and drilled the holes for the ribbon.
This year, I used a black flat spray paint, but other years, I’ve used craft paint. Just whatever I have on hand.
After it was dry, I sanded the edges again. I also lightly sanded the top to give it a worn look.
I cut out the vinyl with my digital cutter. I applied it to the wood and added a cute red ribbon.
