Wrapping it Up ;)

25 Nov

Aren’t those block letters you find at craft stores just addicting!? I also want to go in and buy initials or someones name (especially mine) to decorate just for fun! Well my Mom and Dad bought me E’s letters and I found this piece of wood lying around the house that wasn’t being used for anything and I got a brilliant idea! Wrapping paper so easy to use for decorating things like picture frames, wood letters, really anything!

What you need:

I originally used Elmer’s glue (wet) for this and it made the wrapping paper bubble up so I ripped it off and used the adhesive spray instead. It works SO MUCH BETTER!

A box to put whatever you spraying adhesive on into so you don’t get glue everywhere!

Wrapping paper of your choice

Scissors

X-acto knife comes in handy here! (and a rubber mat if you are using a knife)

How to:

Cut the wrapping paper so that there are leftover edges along the letter.

Spray adhesive to the wooden letter.

Lay the wooden letter adhesive side down on top of the wrapping paper and place a heavy object on it to keep it firm and to push it down.

Let it dry for 3-5 minutes.

Take the heavy object off and use the scissors to cut along the letter but not too close that it’s hard to x-acto later.

Take the x-acto knife and with the wooden letter facing upside down so that the paper is on top of the mat, use the knife to drag across the edges of the wooden letter. Flip over and if there are any places that were too tight to get into or didn’t cut all the way carefully use the knife to edge across it and take off the extra paper. Tada!!! All done!

Of course I did the other letters of the name but you all know her as E so this is the finished product for you 😉

Have fun!!

Love Always,

J
