Z is for Zoey

This project took me just a few minutes and it's super easy, but for those of you who wouldn't know how to do this or you would prefer a tutorial, I'll give step by step instructions. 

Supplies you'll need:
scrapbook paper
mod podge
embellishments (optional)

 Step 1: Lay your paper down with the wrong side up and lay your letter down wrong side up and backwards. Trace along the letter. 

Step 2: When you finish tracing, carefully cut out your letter. 

Step 3: Apply Mod Podge to your letter and carefully lay your paper over the letter, making sure it aligns just right. Press all over to remove any air bubbles from under your paper. Let it dry for a minute or two and then apply a layer of Mod Podge over the paper. It goes on white, but I promise when it dries, you won't see it! 

And you're done!! I went a step further and lightly sanded the edges of my letter to make the edges have a cleaner finish and it even made it look a little vintage-y. 

Easy, right?! You can do anything with letters: decorate them with buttons instead of paper or add bows or flowers. So many possibilities!
