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.
