I made this this weekend for malak's room! I don't want to toot my own horn but...toot toot. :) It was a fun and simple project that anyone can make so easily! Here's how- I bought these cardboard type letters at Hobby Lobby (only like 2 bucks each), then picked out cute scrapbook paper that matched his room. (maybe .50cents a sheet) Then just trace your letters onto the paper and cut 'em out and paint some Mod Podge (it is a glue type stuff that dries completley clear) on your letters and glue that paper down. As soon as they are glued on just paint on more Mod Podge over the top and sides to seal it and make it shiney and you're done! Oh, I also painted the sides of my letters brown so they didn't look like cardboard and I did that before I glued the paper down. I thought I would share the idea since it would be simple for even the un-craftiest person! And there are so many cute paper designs out there to choose from- they really look very cool and professional when you're done.
