4 Scrap book papers

XOXO – Pre-painted white letters

Pre-painted Wooden Sign

Glue Stick

Glue Gun

Scrap Ribbon – 3 or 4 different piece


I found 4 of the cutest pink scrap book papers that I could find. If you want to simplify this process, I highly suggest ordering the same booklet I used. I got mine at Walmart for doubles the price but you can use this link HERE for the exact book I got. I LOVE about 99% of the papers in here. They’re all so cute! And so many cute ones to use for Easter which will be coming up quick!

I chose 2 pinkish and 2 redish colors because I wanted a variety but if you want all pinks or just reds you can do that too! Just maybe mix up the patterns.

So I picked a corner and traced one “X”…..

Picked one corner for saving paper purposes (in case you were wondering) and traced an “O”…..

I repeated the process above with the other X and O. Once everything was cut out, I lined them up how I wanted them to go on their wooden letters.

I placed my wooden letters out how I wanted them laid out…

Then I glued with a glue stick the top of the wooden letter and glued my first “X” on.

I repeated the same process with the rest of the letters.

I glued down the wooden letters to the board. I made my a little crooked and I loved this! I then grabbed a thick piece of burlap ribbon for my base layer of my bow.

Then 3 other pieces of different ribbon. I took the one thinner piece of rick rack and pinched the center and tied all 3 together.

I got into my grandmothers famous button tin that I was so lucky to get out of all the family and grabbed a couple out of it and glued it with a glue gun in the center of my bow.

I just love the way the bow turned out and I think it just makes the shabby sign!
