This one I'm not going to link back to a specific blog since sooooo many of you that I am now following have done this with different words.
I have an Italian/wine theme to my kitchen, and I wanted to add the word Mangia! My mom's side is Italian, and it's something my Nanny says to tell us to dig in any time we're eating at her house. I had originally wanted to find a wine-themed paper, but after searching at hobby lobby, AC Moore, and Michaels, I finally settled on this spice-themed paper from JoAnn's Fabric. It worked out really well because the blue on the paper is the same blue that my walls are painted!
Here's what I did:
Gathered my supplies! Letters .99 each at Hobby Lobby & the paper was .16 each (all paper is 6 for .96 this week at JoAnn's Fabric!! Go get some if you're crafty/a scrapper)
I only painted the edges since the scrapbook paper is super thick.
I traced the letters on the back so that I could try & save some of the extra paper. I'm not sure for what yet, but I HOARD craft supplies like no other. It's getting really bad. The hubs threatens to throw away my empty jars & I feel the anxiety building. lol
Have I every mentioned how much I like Mod Podge?! Well, I do!! I used it to make THIS coach ornament for my tree. I used it as "glue" to stick the paper down, then painted 2 coats over the top since it was super thick scrapbook paper
Made sure it was nice and stuck!
Isn't this the cutest paper for kitchen crafts?! And the blue is the same color as my walls!!
Then I used a razor blade to cut off the extra paper, and Voila! My master piece was complete! I'm not sure if you can tell, but I alternated my paper so the words weren't all going in the same direction. I knew if I tried to do them all one way, and they weren't all straight then it would drive me bananas. lol.
