Decorative Letters

Hi!  I know its been a while.  The holidays are pretty crazy.  I've been really busy with some last minute shopping and orders I've been trying to finish.  Wanted to post a pic of one of my latest projects.  Made these for a client for her twin girl's bedroom. She liked them so much that she wants me to make the rest of their names.  The letters I buy are plain white.  I trace and use an exacto knife to cut the paper I'm going to use.  Then I use permanent spray adhesive to adhere the paper to the letter.  I sand down the edges to even them out, inked around them and then use modge podge to seal it.  Then I embellish it according to what the client would like.  They are super fun to make and I love to see the finished product.  I used the gypsy wanderings cartridge for the butterfly.  for the life of me I can't remember what cart I got the grass from.  :(  the pink ribbon is from none other than Martha Stewart.  The flowers I believe are primas.   have a great night everyone!!
