Black & Pink...

Our Sissy has had her name in the white wooden blocks up in her room for some time...but they are soo plain! So I decided to do them {black & pink} to match her room!!! They turned out sooo super cute! I love them! Here is how I did them:

{black & pink}
Item's Needed:
White Letters for your childs name
Coordinating Scrapbook paper
Mod Podge
Paint Brush
Sanding Block
Razor Blade
Step 1: Take each of your letters, lay them face down on the backside of your scrapbooking paper and trace them.
Step 2: Cut all of them out.
Step 3: Do a thin layer of Mod Podge on your wooden letter and lay your paper onto the letter...press it firmly to make sure there are no air bubbles!
Step 4: Let all of them dry really well!!
Step 5: Mine weren't perfect and had to be trimmed up around the edges...so I used a Razor Blade to do so...
Step 6: Sand the edges of your block and paper to make them blend better...it also leaves a little white edge around it and is soo cute! Also if you wanted to distress them..now is the time to do it!

All sanded and ready to embellishStep 7: Do a layer of Mod podge over top every of your letters to secure the paper on
Step 8: Embellish them as you wish...buttons ribbon, and paper flowers (My new love!) (tutorial soon to show you how to make these babies)
Every letter can be the same or different...

Let them all dry very well and Enjoy!!! :)
I can't help but smile everytime I look at them they are perfect for her room!!! :)
