Great idea. I really like your choice of color match it draws your attention to them.

I like them! I teach second grade. I made hall passes that are similar and the kids love them. The Danish Oil is so smooth. I might make a bookmark like these for each of them. Maybe a message or name on each??

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

What a great idea and a great way to use leftovers. They kinda look like surfboards from my youth.
