Easy, inexpensive signs

For quite some time I've wanted to make a sign and bow holder for Rachel's room, but I didn't want to spend any money. I came up with this idea and I was surprised at how much I liked the result. I found scrap wood in our shed and painted it with craft paint I already had. I used my sizzix machine to cut the letters out. I glued them on (using a glue stick), then sealed it all with liquid varnish. I nailed ribbon to the top so I could hang it, then nailed in the white ribbon at the bottom. I tied the ribbon in a knot to hide the nails. Then I just clipped her bows and flowers onto the white ribbons.

Soooo cute! I've been wanting to make something like this for Renae's bows and clippies. Now I'll just have to convince Brandon to let me use some of his wood!

Cute bow holder! I really like it!
Side note to Rebecca - I'm sure I have scrap wood that you could use!
