· Three letters – the initials you’d like to decorate. These can be wood, or chipboard, and can be found at your local craft store.
· Decorative paper, enough to cover your letters.
· A wide paint brush
· Mod Podge
· An exacto knife
Total cost: About $10 (including mod podge and exacto knife, which can be used on later projects)
Step 1: Trace the letters onto the paper – make sure you are tracing it backwards so the decorative side is the part you see when you adhere it to the block!
Step 2: Cut out shapes using exacto knife. Precision isn’t necessary at this point, but you don’t want to cut too much.
Step 3: Put a thin layer of Mod Podge (or other form of adhesive) on the block, and paste the paper to it. Then spread a moderate layer over the top of the paper.
Step 4: Let dry for 15 minutes.
Step 5: Use exacto knife to trim edges of letter.
Step 6: I like to edge all things craft like with a brown ink – it generally makes an antique quality, but I just adore it!
Step 7: Embellish as you see fit!
