Red, White and Blue

It is DIY day at A Soft Place to Land hosted by Kimba. Here is my project. The large letters I bought from Michael's. I'm sure everyone knows where one of those stores are. Then I picked out my favorite red, white and blue scrapbooking papers. Bought at a number of different places. Then I painted the edges of the letters with my favorite blue paint. Next I sit the letters upside down on the back of the papers and traced. Twice for the S and the A on different papers. Next I cut into 1 or 2 pieces on the 2 alike letters at the same time. And then you piece back together until you are happy with the look. Next Modge Podge them on the letters and decorate with ribbons or anything you would like. I did ink the edges of the paper before decoupaging them. Had hubby hang them above a very high window. I really wanted them to look as though they were sitting on the ledge but he had his own opinion on that. But heh that's ok, because I did not want to climb up there myself.

This is clever. I can see doing a child's name or a holiday wish with them in different papers as well. Thanks for sharing.

That's a good idea! I love how you did this, it looks great. I have to have my husband help with my projects too, and there are just some times when it doesn't turn out exactly as I visualized it either. :)
