Quick 2x4 Gift

Here is a cute little 2x4 idea. It holds pictures and is a simple and fast gift.
Start with a 2x4. Cut it to any length you want. This piece was left over so I used what I had.
Drill holes on the top of your piece to hold your wires. Do as little or as many as you like.

Cut a piece of paper to the needed size and Mod Modge your paper on. Press it down and then let dry. When dry you can sand the edges to create a more rough edge.

I used my Cricut to cut the word FAMILY in white vinyl.

I also used ink to darken my edges.

Twist your wires.
I added a ribbon around the board. I stuck my wire through the ribbon and into the pre-drilled holes.

All done. This took me only about a half hour. It would have been faster if I didn't have three kids bugging me!
Now I think I am going to give this to one of my friends. Hope she likes it!
