I'm still adding aqua touches to my kitchen.....remember THIS post?!! heres my latest addition and craft project.
this is a fast project. i found some really cool ideas on pinterest. people make them for their kids' rooms, laundry rooms (wash), kitchens, craft rooms. too many options! but im going to make them for a baby gift for an upcoming baby to be born this summer. i just have to wait to find out her name.
here's what i did. i bought the letters from michaels. with a coupon of course!! they also had scrapbook paper 7 for a buck! i love a good sale.
so trace your letter on the scrapbook paper. i did on the back and make sure your letter is backwards before cutting it out. using some mod podge, put a thin layer on the letter then I just put my scrapbook paper letter on it and smoothed it out. let dry. then i added another layer of mod podge over the paper and wood to give it a seal. you don't have to do this step. but its going in my kitchen. grease, grime, yuck.
i also used a sanding block and sanded the edges a bit because the paper was hanging over a little. Ive seen people use distressing ink around the edges too. thats a GREAT look and im for sure using that on my baby gift letters.
I've started another one for my craft room. what do you think im spelling out? come on....take a guess. ;)
