It’s A Wrap!

My little craft area in our garage was repositioned and actually works out to my benefit.  I now have shelves above the little table/cart that I claimed as my own, and I’ve been “decorating” my space!  More on that to come in a future post.  I hope you can bear another monogram/letter post because I really needed to do something creative and this was quick and easy.


One of the items I decided to use to add a little “me” into the mix, were these “P” letters I had purchased from Michaels awhile ago.  The little ones were in a clearance box that I sat down on the floor and went through.  I think they were $.25 each.  And how cool ~ they’re magnetic!


I took some wrapping paper that I bought through Hobby Lobby online and turned the letters face side down on the back side of the wrapping paper.  Trace and cut out.  I used Mod Podge to attach the paper to the letters.  Apparently, wrapping paper likes to roll up when it’s been Mod Podged, so I had to work fast.


Two coats on top once it was dry and done!  You know how I like these quick projects.  I always feel like I accomplished something major.  The little ones were so small it was hard to get a pattern from the pink paper on it, but I was able to line up the Eiffel Tower on the larger “P” and get a good amount of the pattern on there.



Don’t forget wrapping paper when considering some paper crafts!  There are some really pretty designs.

The Cottage Charm Giveaway is still running ~ don’t forget to enter!

Linking up to Be Inspired at Room To Inspire and Make It Yours Day at My Backyard Eden.

Love those letters. Every time I see these posts with the letters I want some and just don't know where to put them. I think I will just get some and worry about that later. I love yours with the Eiffel Tower. So neat.

Kathy love your letters and the wrapping paper. I have to check that out at Hobby Lobby. I had fun scrolling throw your lstest posts. I've been so busy with my drapery business that I haven't had time to brouse lately. I also love the signs that you will be adding to your shop. Also your chair that you skirted for your vanity is a great idea. I want to try it out with some tulle for the Tea Castle.
Thanks for always stopping by. I love to see what you are up to.

I love these - especially the since my last name starts with a "P" as well! Great papers - I will have to take a better look at wrapping paper from now on.
