Isn't that adorable!?
So, I decided on the word JOY to display above our stockings during the holidays. Then I headed to Michael's and bought some supplies!
I printed out several copies of our Christmas card on regular computer paper. From my (limited) decoupage experience, photos do not decoupage well. And the thinner the paper, the easier to decoupage! First, I traced the letters on the BACK of the paper/card. Then, I started to cut & paste! I used the Paper Modge Podge for most of the project. Thanks to Flann, who tipped me off to Sparkle Modge Podge - I used that as the final coat to give the letters a little holiday sparkle! :)
I love how the letters turned out! This project has so many possibilities and you can really get creative (paint, ribbon, etc.). A decoupaged monogram would make an adorable baby shower, housewarming or wedding shower gift don't you think!?
