One of my friends got married this past weekend and so this was the present I made. Their last name is "Nava" so that's what I spelled out. I'm sure most of you have seen these around. You can buy a frame and all the letters for your last name (or whatever you want to spell) for anywhere from 40-80 bucks. Kinda steep. So here's what I did...
1. I bought a frame at Michael's that you're supposed to put a dollar bill in (weird, I know). Nonetheless, I got it for five bucks.
2. I used my xacto knife to make the width a bit longer.
3. I went outside and took pictures of things that looks like the letters and had them developed.
4. For a more finished look, I added some strips of cardstock inbetween the letters.
