A Journey To Forever

Earlier this year, my cousin gave me the most adorable gift by using a 2x4, paper and vinyl.  I thought these would make great gifts.  So I decided to make my own version.


I've had this project sitting around since June and I finally got it done last week.  I went to Home Depot and had a 2x4 cut up into 9 inch, 6 inch and 5 1/2 inch pieces.


Then I painted all the pieces black with some craft paint.


I cut some pattern paper to fit the blocks and so that a little of the black was showing around the edge.


I ordered some vinyl from Utah Vinyl.


I added the pattern paper to the wood with some Mod Podge.


Then attached the vinyl.


I added another coat of Mod Podge on top and then added a little ribbon to the "F".  I thought they turned out so adorable.


I ended up making a few different colors.




These would make great Christmas gifts too.  The paper combinations are endless.
