{enjoy the view} Embellished Paper Mache Letters

(inspired by Jo-Ann's "Quest" Letters from "Cape Discovery" #summerfojoann)

Here's what I used:

1) Trace letters onto scrapbook paper

2) Cut out letters

3) Paint cardboard letters

4) When dry, top with sparkle glaze. I only did this on the edges that wouldn't be covered by paper.

5) To apply paper letters - apply Mod Podge or other adhesive to surface of letter...

6) Then carefully align paper letter with edges of cardboard letter and press into place.

7) Since I used coordinating paper for this side of the letters, I embellished each one a little differently. For the floral paper, I put rhinestones in the center of the flowers - and for the dotted paper, I outlined the entire letter in rhinestones.

One side finished!

8) For the other side of the letters, you repeat steps 1-6.

For this side, I used a different color and textured paper for each letter - hot pink embossed hearts, deep purple velvet, and shiny lime green with glitter.

9) For the embellishment, I used felt owl stickers from Jo-Ann's. They are very sticky, so be sure you have them positioned correctly before you press them into place.

How cute are they??

And, of course, my tutorial for the coordinating Ribbon Cork Board!
