What you’ll need
- Wooden Letter or Letters
- Mod Podge
- Sponge Brush
- Scrapbook Paper
- Craft Knife or Scissors
If you use scissors then you will probably at least need a craft knife for harder to reach areas. For example, cutting around the corners of a N or the center of an A.
Once you have the letter or letters traced then you are going to cut them or trim them with your knife. After all your pieces are ready to be Mod Podge you will want to spread a layer of mod podge onto your entire letter. I suggest doing only one letter at a time.
Place the scrapbook paper letter on top, line up all the edges and press down firmly. If you find that you have any bubbles you can just smooth them out with your fingers. At this point you can allow your letter to dry but I always like to put a layer of Mod Podge on top to seal and protect.
Then it’s just a game of wait till all your letters dry. Once the letters are fully dry then you can take your sandpaper and sand the edge gently for a finished look. If you find that your scrapbook paper hung over to much flip the letter over and use your knife to trim any edges. You can also coat with a sealer to rid of any tacky feel that the Mod Podge tends to have once dried.
