I have been wanting to alter one of these paper mache letters from JoAnn fabrics for a while now, and finally found time to give one a try~
I did this one for my daughters friend for a Christmas present, they were Advent Angels at Church.
It was actually challenging to get the paper placed nicely on it! I had started out with one idea in my head, and of course, another came as a result of my constant mind changing.
I personally am not a fan of this print, so I am not overall excited about the end result...However, I am told that for a 5 year old who likes girly stuff, she was very happy. Could be the GINORMOUS prima also.
Something about it doesn't appeal to me...weird huh?
Ever make something for someone who loved it, but you weren't happy with it?
The back side is covered with the flip side of this paper which is the pink polka dots.
I hope I got enough bling and sparkle!! Each small prima has stickles, the center brad to the big flower is covered in stickles, I lined the edges with stickles, did rows of glitter and stickles, one row of microbeads, and the various rows of blingy brads. At the bottom right corner I stamped the definition You from define your life, and the miscellaneous flowers and butterflies.
I managed to pick a larger W and L to do for my kids, when time permits. This A is maybe a foot tall, the letters I got for my kids are just about 2 feet tall. Much more space to screw up if I don't like it!
