PROJECT FRIDAY!

I have always wanted to make the scrapbook paper letters I have seen on other blogs and finally I made some.
Items needed:

Wooden Letters (I bought mine at Hobby Lobby)
Mod Podge
Foam brush
Acrylic Paint
Scrap Book papers (I bought mine at Hobby Lobby)

1. Trace the letters onto the scrap book paper and cut out.
2. Paint the back and sides of the letters.(Do not paint the top of the letter as you will be putting the scrapbook paper with Mod Podge.)Let them dry before going to the next step.
3. Pour some of the Mod Podge on a paper plate and brush onto the top of the letter you are working with and place the cut out scrapbook paper on top. Make sure you smooth out the air bubbles. Brush some more of the Mod Podge on top of the paper to seal it. Continue this step with each letter. Let dry.



Hope you will give this a try. I know I will be making some more. This was so much fun.
Hugs :)

I have all of these scrapbook supplIies but can't seem to get them into any kind of order or project. Oh well...in my next life maybe. I do hope you will join me for Crock Pot Wednesdays at Diningwithdebbie.blogspot.com. There are some really great giveaways for the inaugural event. Come check it out. I think you will enjoy Tomato Bob's site. He's an original seedsaver.
