So here it is, all finished! I really like the green ribbon with the white and blue polk-a-dots. I think it added a nice touch. I was planning on hanging it on the wall, but now I'm wondering if I'll just put it on an easel instead...? I'm not quite sure, but the wood alone is almost 5 lbs.
Viola! I showed my parents (it's fun having a live audience when I've finished projects to show) and my dad thinks I should sell them! Ha! I'm sure there are 500 people on etsy that already do! There's no way I am the original on this! Although, I will have you know that I actually haven't seen this exact thing in person ever...I don't think.
And Molly wanted to make sure it met her approval. It's kind of nice to have them all here and not in a box so they're all covered up and I have to dig around to find the one I want!
For those who'd like the tutorial, here's what I did. I bought the piece of wood from a cool place called Wood Connection. Actually my mom and sister picked it up one day while they were there. I think it cost me $5 and the two holes at the top were already drilled in. Then of course I sanded and painted the edges and mod podged the scrapbook paper on. Then I glue gunned the ribbon on each end, top and bottom. That's it!
