I got the best surprise in the mail yesterday…my best friend’s (since college!) birthday package. I look forward to this all year, because she is uber creative and talented, and always has the best ideas.

I LOVE this set of fall letters–she chose a really great set of papers (hers are Basic Grey). She also told me how she made them, and I can’t wait to make another set for Christmas!

ITEMS YOU NEED:

-wooden letters (thick enough to stand on their own)
-scrapbook adhesive
-scrapbook paper of your choice
-sanding tool or file…she likes these:

(sanding block by Making Memories)


(file kit by Basic Grey)

-walnut colored ink and sponge

-pencil
-scissors

DIRECTIONS:

-Trace letters onto scrapbook paper, then cut out carefully.
-Using scrapbook adhesive, adhere the paper to the letters.
-Sand/file the edges of the paper so the paper is an exact fit.
-Distress the edges using the walnut ink and sponge.

That’s it! Such a fun and easy way to decorate for any season you choose. Thanks Ang!!

  1. I guess I should have told you that I did stain the wood first using a regular wood stain.

  2. Also, as soon as she puts out her idea for Christmas, I will let you know what it is and see if you want to buy the wood here. I could just send it to you.

  3. Michelle, I got them at my local scrapbook store. The lady here does a class almost once a month with different words. She cuts all of her own wood. She has a cute one out for halloween that says WITCH, and another set that I love that says FAMILY. Her class includes the paper, but I have been just buying the wood and choosing paper that matches my decor/taste exactly!

  4. Hee Hee! I can't believe I found this! I was reading through your blog and saw my letters! First off~~Angela, Awesome job with those! I love em'! Second, Thanks for the kind words!
