I started working on a sweet banner to use for the baby shower!! I bought these big ol' letters at Hobby Lobby and ended up buying two sets because I was using too many duplicate letters (and still ended up making another A out of a V and a piece of another letter!)
It may end up being too much but I wanted to pick and choose what words to have hanging and I also wanted to include Clara's name so Emily could keep it for the her room, too.
First, I painted all of the edges white as I didn't want to see the gray cardboard color ~ then I went ahead an painted the fronts too....I figured it would make the scrapbooking paper look prettier.
I placed them each in an old cardboard box and sprayed with Elmer's spray glue (w-mart) and pressed sticky face down to the back of the scrapbooking paper ~
Trimmed each letter with a very sharp Exacto blade and then used an old emery board to smooth out any rough spots ~
OK, now what do I do?!! I want to make some pennants now to stick the letters to. (And they already have an adhesive back, you just have to peel and stick!)
I ended up getting rid of all of my cake decorating supplies awhile ago but did find a neat kit just for cupcakes that I'm going to use. I love those Michael's coupons!!
I am in love with these hanging pom poms below!! The instructions are HERE and I want to make some!! Don't you think they'd look precious at the baby shower in pastels?
I've been worried that the images that I'm giving you are not scanned correctly and that the resolution is not good at all ~ I'm checking into it to try to improve the quality that I'm offering you for your art!
Oh, and what can you do with these images? Use them on the front of a handmade cards, in collages and assemblages, to make tags, in journals, you could even frame them! Any other ideas?? Your printer is a great tool to use in your artwork ~
Wishing you a wonderful Friday sweet friends,
