Tutorial: LOVE Wall Decor

My bare walls needed some "love" - so I made these wall hangings out of cardboard and scrapbook paper.  Call me cheap, but I "love" 'em!

  1. Cut a piece of cardboard into 4 pieces of the same size and shape.  I used the side of a cardboard box from the box fan I bought a couple of weeks ago.
  2. Cut out letter forms to use as a stencil.  I made these from white scrapbook paper.  
  3. Flip the cardboard over to the back, and lay your letters down on backwards.  Trace the letters.  The reason it's on the back is so that marks from your pencil/pen/marker are on the back and not the front.
  4. Use an Xacto knife to cut out your shapes.  (Save those extra letters for a project to be posted on The KC Experience at a later date.)
  5. Pick out paper to glue behind your letters, and glue those suckers on!
That's it!  I like to think I'm the queen of simple.  :)  To hang them, I just hot glued some gift wrap ribbon to the back sides and hung them on push pins!  I don't know about you, but I'm pretty impressed with my ingenuity.
