letters for the laundry room

No, I’m not talking about writing love letters to my laundry room.  Maybe when I finish the room, but until then here’s an art update!

Yesterday morning I made a quick trip to Hobby Lobby and picked up some supplies for some word fun: cardboard letters and scrapbook paper.

I traced each the letters on an individual sheet of scrapbook paper and then cut the paper letter out with scissors.  The “A” was the only letter that required me to use a rotary blade {note: using a rotary blade after drinking an espresso drink is alot harder than imagined… #shakyhands}.

After the scrapbook paper letters were all cut out, I decide to paint the edges of the cardboard letters white since they were going to be a little exposed once they went on the wall.  This was probably the most time consuming part of the project, and by time consuming I mean 10 minutes {I like to keep things simple}.  Once they were dry, I got my trusty glue adhesive tape and secured the paper to the cardboard.  I’ve read some instructions where some people modge podge letters to cardboard, but I like that I have the option of changing it up if I get tired of my green ikat print.  But let’s be honest… will I ever get tired of ikat print?
