Paper Mache Letters, Part 2

In a previous post, I wrote about covering 8" paper mache letters with patterned scrapbook paper.  I planned to decorate for the holidays by using the letters to spell out short words like "BOO" and "JOY."  I entertained the idea of doing this craft during our Girl Scout troop Christmas Party or at camp, letting each girl decorate her first initial.  Here are the step-by-step instructions:

Step 1:  Place letter backward on blank side of patterned paper and trace.

Step 2:  Cut out the letter.

 Step 3:  Paint the back and sides of the letter. 

 Step 4:  Be sure to paint the front edges of the letter.

Step 5:  Cover with a layer of Mod Podge.

Step 6:  Position paper on letter and press to adhere.

 Step 7:  Add another layer of Mod Podge.  Let dry.

Step 8:  Hot glue a ribbon to the back of the letter.  
 Step 9:  Embellish and Enjoy!

This is a relatively inexpensive and easy craft.  The girls had fun making the letters their own.  Thanks for reading!
