Wooden Embellishments are still all the trend going into 2013.  Many companies are producing these cute embellishments, but finding them can be tricky for some of us.

You can also:
1.  Use Chipboard and stamp wood grain on it or cover it with woodgrain paper
2.  Layer a die cut to get some thickness and use woodgrain paper/stamp for the top layer
3. fine some cute wooden shapes at a craft store
4.  Stamp on a posicle stick for some great word alternatives
5.  Buy some thin veneer sheets and use a punch or die cut machine to make shapes
