I learned something today. A 2x4 is not 2 inches by 4 inches. Nope. It's 1.5 inches by 3.5 inches. Apparently this is common knowledge for some. Not me. Not Rachel (my sis-in-law who partnered with me on this project). So, I am rather lucky this project worked out the way it did. I ordered the vinyl lettering (www.milesofvinylforyou.com - FYI, this company is here in Clovis) to fit a 2x4 thinking that it was ACTUALLY going to be 4" wide. Anyway, here is the latest. Total cost = $10
The ribbon on the Letter "I" is just kinda' hanging there because I thought the "I" block was a little boring - still gotta' figure out what to do there...
Here is the inspiration (saw it on Pinterest, for sale on Etsy for $20 + $10 shipping) This one is a little bigger, but I think our copycat version is pretty darn good.
Thanks for doing this with me, Rachel!
