Super easy, personalized baby gift

I am co-hosting a baby shower with some friends tonight, and I thought it would be a nice idea to get baby Solomon something a little personalized. This project is super easy AND, as an added plus, super easy to CHANGE if the colors I have chosen don't coordinate with Solomon's room.

Background paper and ribbon can be changed in no time, making the gift something that can grow and change as he does. 

My hot glue gun has become one of my favorite things - it works perfectly to adhere the letter to the glass. Simply cover with something heavy, like a book, to ensure that the letter has ample time to adhere itself to the glass. 

The end result? Something home made just for Solomon. 

That's pretty cool, I think. Personalized gifts are the best! :)
