Friday is the last day of school for my kids. So, it was time to make one last gift for their teachers. 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 will be in trouble next year, because for the first time, my kids have repeat teachers.
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.
