First, we took the blank letters, and we colored the sides with a Copic Marker. We chose R27 for our red. We weren’t so concerned about not staying in the lines, because we wanted to have a little bit of the red overlap the top to give the papers some forgiveness in case they weren’t the right size.
After the edges and inside were colored, we traced the letters on to the paper, and cut them out. I used my Cutterbee Retractable Craft Knife to cut out the difficult spots.
After that, we glued the paper to the letters. I like Scoth Quick Dry Adhesive, but any adhesive will do.
After the paper was adhered, I used an emerory board to sand the jagged edges. When that was done, we added the embellishments! Et viola… a fun, hand made gift for baby’s room!
Don’t forget, we’ve still got our fairy coloring contest going on, and first prize is three copic markers of your choice! Also, wishing Ann, Mike and baby a happy and swift conclusion to their pregnancy!
