I made 3 of these as gifts and one for me to keep. I got the wooden plaque, the wooden letter, the plate stand and the scrapbook paper @ Hobby Lobby (they have the BEST selection of paper IMO) for under $10. With monogrammed stuff being so popular right now, this makes a perfect custom gift.
I painted the plaques and the letters black and then distressed them. Next, I decoupaged the base paper onto the plaque (if you don't know how to do this, see my tutorial for the Spring Door Plaque). After that dried, I decoupaged the second sheet of paper on top. While the Mod-Podge was still wet, I placed the letter on that and then sat something heavy on top for about an hour. This helps in the case that the letter is slightly warped (it probably is, a little). Then I went over the whole piece with two coats of polyurethane with a satin finish.
And that's it!
