Tutorial below the jump!
- Two pieces of coordinating scrapbook paper
- Letter or other shape (mine was made of a cardboard-like substance)
- Mod Podge
- Foam brush
1. Choose the piece of scrapbook paper you want on the front of the letter, flip it and the letter over. Your letter should be "backwards" or reversed. Trace around the letter. (With an E in this particular font, the letter is symmetrical and the flipping doesn't really matter in this case.)
2. Lay the letter right side up on top of the backside of the second piece of scrapbook paper and trace.
4. Put the paper aside, and paint edges of the letter. Make sure to cover the corners. It's OK if you get paint on the faces of the letter. Let dry.
5. Cover the front of the letter with a thin layer of Mod Podge and carefully lay down the front paper. Smooth with your fingers to get any bubbles out. Make sure to press down the edges firmly.
6. There will probably be paper overhanging some of the edges. Trim this off with the scissors, but be careful not to cut the letter itself.
7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 for the backside of the letter. Let dry thoroughly.
8. Cover the entire letter in Mod Podge. You will probably have to do this in several sessions because you need at least one edge to rest the letter while it dries. I gave my E two coats.
I'm lucky that this letter E is reversible. Tired of the floral? Flip over for stripes!
