I made this for my son's room. I used 4" square plaques from Michaels and painted the sides black. I covered the plaques with assorted sports scrapbook paper. I used the Scotch Super 77 Multi-Purpose Adhesive to glue the paper onto each plaque. I bought the letters from Michaels and used Elmer's Wood Glue. I hot glued the ribbon to the backs of the plaques and used a D-Ring to secure the ribbon. You can use any kind of ring.
