Love Plaque

Love is all you need to craft this heartfelt plaque. Okay, that’'s not entirely true. You will need a few other items, including Nicole™ Crafts wood letters, but you'’ll definitely want to make sure this piece is made with love.

Nothing you can make that can't be made into a Twitter post: #ACMooreInspired
