I'm so excited with how well it turned out and the fact that it was super easy.
I've had some planks of wood hanging around for a while, so I took one and painted it red, white, and blue separating it with painters tape.
After the paint was dry, I used E6000 to glue some USA floral ribbon on to the sides. Just make sure you press down firmly and get the glue to spread out. I left it alone for a while, and it stays just fine.
It was looking awesome! I love how the ribbon turned out.
Last step...I cut out letters in vinyl with my Silhouette. Thankfully, I had red vinyl on hand. If I didn't, I could have painted it on using the vinyl as a stencil.
