Monday Made It!


I'm so excited to link up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics for her weekly linky party of Monday Made It. This is week 6 in the summer for the linky party, but it's my first time linking up. Ever. Not just for the summer, but ever. You'd think I never make anything or something. I do. I really do. I just apparently never blog about it.

Anyway, last week I headed out to Hobby Lobby with a dear friend of mine and bought the following:


My classroom is a sweet shoppe theme with the main colors as hot pink, teal, and black so these scrapbook papers will fit in perfectly. I have a pretty teal shelf that they will look beautiful on. Don't worry- I'll show you when I set up my room for the school year.

 I'm sure you know where I'm going with this post. Letters, scrapbook paper, Mod Podge. 

Yes, I'm going to Mod Podge the scrapbook paper to the letters. That was all I had planned. Then I started thinking about the sides and how I didn't want the sides to be plain brown. So, I busted out my pink spray paint! I love spray paint.


Then, I had this:



I painted them front and back. Honestly, I didn't need them painted on the front. I got a little carried away. I was having fun. Also, make sure you trace your letters onto your scrapbook paper before you spray paint.

{Also, side note... I sent my sister this picture and she sent back, "Erda?" :) }

After the letters were dry, I began applying the Mod Podge to each letter. The Mod Podge needs to be completely smooth, not bumpy like it is in this picture.


Then, you apply the paper. Once it is positioned where you want it, you smooth it down. Then, add some more Mod Podge.


This is what the finished product looks like:





That's it! Thanks for checking out my new little craft! Can't wait to put my letters inside my classroom!

  1. I absolutely love them. I agree about the Mod Podge. I've done a few rushed projects in the past and a few bumps were left. When that does happen, I make sure to press down really hard when I do the top coat of the Mod Podge. That seems to help! :)

  2. Awesome! Love the colors and patterns. Will you hang them on the wall somehow or set them on a shelf? I totally want to do this! My room has an ocean theme, so LOTS of turquoise :)

  4. These are TOO cute! I had the same issues last summer when I made a read sign; it's so hard to choose the perfect scrapbook paper :)
