READ Letters

I finally got to a summer craft project for my classroom and have linked up with Tara!!!

I used my Michaels' gift card from of my students to buy wooden letters R, E, A, and D.  ($3.99 a piece regular price)  I also bought the Back to School stack of scrapbook paper. ($19.99 regular price)

I traced and cut out the letters and glued them on to the wood using craft glue, I spread it out real thin with my finger.  I sanded around the edges.

My husband cut a board and painted it white.  He screwed and glued on the letters for me.

My last step was adding some ribbon and buttons.


  1. I love the paper you used to cover the letters. And the ribbon and buttons make it look so cute! Good job. I might have to make these, too.

  2. Your letters turned out so cute. You have inspired me.
