The other weekend when I was babysitting and took the kiddos to Hobby Lobby, I found these fun cardboard letters of a decent size and they were only $2.47 a piece so I was pretty excited for the possibilities of a really cheap craft (for myself!!)
So here is what I started with- simply the letter and a fun pack of tape I had purchased back before the holidays because it spoke to me- but I didn't really quite have a purpose for it yet. Either way, I just knew I had to use it for this little project. To be fair, I'd rather have had something PURPLE or GREEN but hey, I have been a little more into pink lately, so why not!
I taped at an angle just to be a little
complicated fun. You can't see it here, but (you will later) I taped up the edges all fun-like too. Now comes the fun part- which I didn't take pictures of- cutting off all the extra around the edges with my handy dandy cutter. I also put one coat of matte mod-podge and let it dry to give a nice seal and make sure the tape wasn't going anywhere.
I waited until this morning to take pictures in an effort to get a wonderful sunny sky and nice pictures. Well of course it was snowy and windy and cold. There was a little bit of sun but not for long. I was able to snap a few picture of the final product.
I think I will be making some more of these in the future for others. I need some cutting practice or a different blade maybe. I do love the overall look of how it turned out though. I am really ready for spring and these bright colors in nature--- that's for darn sure :)
