Probably because I have some little kiddies come and stay with me for a few hours, once in a while. While my own kids are entirely beyond these, they still manage to find a way to mess around with them.
My friend Roo (who is hilariously clever and talented), over at Nice Girl Notes inspired me with her "non-obnoxious magnet letters." I used the existing letters (can you say Stashbusting?), but she provided the vision. Thanks!
I used stylish scrapbook paper and Mod Podge, and covered them. After waiting a few minutes (it's tough I tell you), I used my exacto knife to trim as close to the letters as possible. Then I used sandpaper, and small files to clean up the edges, and tight spots.
I covered them with Mod Podge and then my Art Gel to shine them up.
Ooh, fancy! I have enough letters left to make an initial for each kiddo, and the words yes and no. Stay tuned...
