Hi, my name is Stephanie and I blog over at Livin' the Dream. I am a stay-at-home Mommy to a precious baby boy, and a wife of 5 years. I discovered my crafty side a few years back, and would love to share my stories, crafts, and recipes with you.
|Me and my precious boy!|
- A papercrafted letter, cardboard letter, or wooden letter
- 2 pieces of scrapbook paper
- Mod Podge
- Scissors/ X acto knife
- White paint
- Foam brushes
- Other various accessories for display
First of all, I painted the letter, so that any part not covered in paper would be white. I went ahead and painted the whole letter, just in case. I just bought some white acrylic paint and used a foam brush to put it on.
Next I traced each side of the "B" onto the scrapbook paper. Make sure you trace it onto the back of the paper, and that it is flipped the correct way so it's facing the right direction.
You should have two pretty equally shaped scrapbook letters...Don't you just love the glittery one?!
Then take some of every crafter's best friend...Mod Podge...and put a light coating over the entire letter.
Then, just do the same to the other side.
Up close, you shouldn't be able to see any overhang on either side...
If you do, go ahead and run your x-acto knife around and slice those little over hangers off of there!
Then, make a little display out of your lovely, christmas-y letter.
This is on my bookshelf. I like how simple and clean it looks.
Also, I like the cleaner look of it, but go ahead and go crazy and embellish it if you so choose. There are all kinds of things you could add to make it a little more festive.
I'm pretty sure I may even have some ribbon trees that would go lovely with it.
Thank you so much for letting me share my craft with you. Feel free to come on over to Livin' the Dream and check out some more of my crafty posts. Like my Fall Throw Pillow from a Placemat</ a>

I also post a lot of recipes and just stories of my experiences in being a new mom of a baby with craniosynostosis. Come join me, I'd love to hear from you!
