The other day I was walking through JoAnn's and saw those large cardboard/chipboard/whateverboard letters and just had to buy one. Like it was a requirement. Couldn't leave the store without it.
So I got home and gathered some other supplies. Mod Podge and scrapbooking paper (pretty much staples around my house).
Then I basically just traced the R on my paper, cut it out, and Mod Podged it onto the R. Here is is still all goopy and Mod Podgy...
Now it's all dry and pretty and on the shelf! (the little girl in the picture is my mom as a kid...love it)
