So last night I was able to sneak out ALL BY MYSELF!! I decided I wasn't going to waste my freedom on going food shopping or running other necessary errands. I headed over to Legacy Place in Dedham to one of my absolute favorite stores, Paper Source. After spending over an hour perusing all the fabulousness, here is what I ended up with:
Some cool large sheets of decorative paper...
This is hilarious, get it? baby shower wrapping paper! HA, love it!
And we have some preliminary results:
I made these for Nolan and Sean's bedroom to go along with their pirate theme. Arrrrrrrgh!
I wish I could give step by step instructions, but I was a bit of a mess. I can give some tips.
Here are my supplies:
Flip the paper over and trace the letter leaving an extra 1/2 an inch...
(do you like my tracing tool, couldn't find a pencil!)
I was going to use this
But I couldn't get the jar open and my husband wasn't home, so I used Mod Podge
I painted the Mod Podge on the letter and on the paper.
anywhere there was any kind of curve I cut slits. For the "S" I basically cut fringe all around in. Once you do this on both sides and you glue it on you can cover your "fringe" marks with strips of paper.
I did one side at a time, letting each side dry before I did the other. When I finished each side I completely covered it with Mod Podge and then left it dry before continuing. I wish I got the glossy one, the one I bought was matte. Anyway, I covered up any "fringe" marks or blanks spots with strips.
