Who says a 2x4 can't be cute?

I made this today, it's my Grandson Nick. He had his winter formal lastnight and he went stag! He looked so handsome as you can see for yourself.
My husband cut the wood for me in 6 inch pieces, I sanded it a little, painted in black , let it dry and then sanded the edges a bit to make it look aged.
I adhered the paper and picture with my xyron, used some ink to sponges the edges of the paper. I used stazon ink to stamp the love image, which is important so it doesn't bleed after spraying with a sealer. Tied a ribbon around it ...DONE! What a easy gift. I'm giving this one to my Daughter.
I think I will put these in my Etsy store and offer them for 10.00 I think that's a good deal, don't you?  I just need to make a few more samples then  I will post them there for sale
