Scrabble tile LOVE!

I love to play scrabble and the simple design of the tiles so when I started to see some crafts in the blogging world using scrabble tiles, I feel in love.  I wanted to use the scrabble tiles but wanted them a little larger so I decided to make my own.  I used a piece of craft wood that you can buy at any craft store and cut it to square lengths as you can see in the picture below:
I then got out my Cricut machine and cut the letters and numbers for the tiles.  I used vinyl but you could use any paper and then just modge podge it on.
After that, I struggled for a minute on what to connect the tiles with but remembered a Valentine craft my sister did over at Craft Affection and decided to use ribbon.  I could not find any tacks like she used for her crafts to I got out my trusty hot glue gun and glued the ribbon/lace on the back of the tiles.
Last but not least, I made a loop of lace for the top to hang the finished product and added a bow of the same lace so I could highlight the lace a bit more.  Here is the finished product on my wall. 

I planned on making this for my booth down at Signs and Wonders but decided it is too cute and I will have to keep it.  I made it for Valentine's decorations but it is not overly pink and red so I can use it all year round.  Hope you enjoy the craft and let me know what you think!
