Look What I Made! Kids Art Display

Since my little one started nursery almost 6 months ago she has been bringing home the sweetest coloring pages! I've been seeing some fun ideas to display kids art, here is my version!

Here's how I made this:

I have a few of these wood boards in my garage that I got from my neighbors trash a while back. They measure 24''x7''. I got one out and gave it a nice coat of paint.

I downloaded a free font from dafonts.com that looked like cute kids handwriting, then I used my silhouette to cut the vinyl. I also thought of doing "art gallery" but I decided "look what I made" was more fun. If anyone wants me to cut vinyl for them, I charge $4.00 for the saying in this general size.
I got some wooden clothespins I had laying around and traced them on some scapbook paper, using colors that matched our play/tv room. Then I just cut out the paper and modge podged it onto the clothespins.
I added the hardware to the back of my project before I glued the clothespins on

Then I kind of eyeballed where to put the clothespins and used hot glue to glue them on.
