So that “M” I made

Was actually really easy (and less than $5!) to do!

Material list:
1. A large letter from Michael’s/A.C. Moore/Hobby Lobby.  Mine was pretty thin, and sort of particle board type material.  There are a wide variety of sizes and types out there, so take your time and choose the one that suits you best.
2. Scrapbooking paper – 1 sheet.  I got the large square and it fit perfectly.
3. Pen/pencil.
4. Scissors
5. Some sort of adhesive
6. A brush for the adhesive (mine came with it).

Put the letter face down on the wrong side of the scrapbooking paper

Trace around the letter.

Slowly and carefully cut it out (which, surprisingly, is so hard for me to do.  I apparently failed kindergarten cutting)

Turn the letter right side up, and start in one corner of the letter by brushing on the glue.  Match up the cut out letter with the “wooden” letter and carefully smooth the paper onto the glued section.  Continue all over the letter, smoothing out any air bubbles and wiping off any excess glue that may come out of the sides.

When you’re finished, it should look like this

I put ours up on the wall with velcro strips, just in case I want to change the letter’s paper.  You could also use the 3M adhesive strips.

Quick, easy, and best of all – CHEAP!
