That's right my friends, it's time for installment two on my recycled wood box. Let's take a look at this side of the container...
Before I begin, I have to tell you about my deal on these chipboard letters. All paper crafting paraphenalia was on sale at Joann's. Add in a 25% off your entire purchase coupon, and how could you pass up 366 monograms for $3.50?!
If you can, I'm very impressed! Obviously, I can't exhibit any restraint.
I set to work jazzing them up. The "a" was simply covered in that fantastic Tim Holtz Tissue Tape. I outlined it with a pink marker.
I mixed up some acrylic paint for the "R." As you can see, I didn't mix it completely. I was going for a marbled effect that would match the paper I used on the two hearts.
I didn't really paint the letter so much as place the paint all over it. I am happy with the result.
The "t" was pretty simple. I had this pink felt border in my stash, which I just cut so it would fit to a "T." (So sorry about that) I glued it with Fabri-Tac, so it dried nice and fast.
I stuck the letters on with tacky glue, and added some other fun stuff like the key with ribbon, and the paper flower.
I have always loved personalizing monograms like this. The possibilities are practically endless...especially with 366 of them!
