Well, actually I was wrong. I was looking for some more woodplaques yesterday, and I noticed the woodburning iron is only $10. If you will want some nicer plaques you'll find them in Hobby Lobby or Michael's.
But for practice you can find cheap ones in WalMart. The 5" by 7" are only $1ea. :)
Good luck! Don't forget to post a picture of your work when you try it.
If you will need any tips or help feel free to ask. Don't get discouraged with the first try. My first one didn't look very impressive haha. Second one was much better. ;)
Oh and sand it down to get it smooth so your tip doesn't catch in the wood - your lines would be very uneven.
