Art Project

I've been wanting to get the wooden letters for Jack's name to put above his crib since he was born... But we never had the extra money to buy them.
So I was thinking the other day, and came up with a free solution! Enter cardboard boxes left from moving, glue sticks, and scrapbook paper...

And you get:

Cutting out the letters and getting them all roughly the same size was the hardest part, but I finally managed. Then I just had to figure out what to do on all the letters...

But I think they came out good! I plan on hanging them with white ribbon... I will eventually post a picture of them on the wall when I get it done!

I love this idea! Just like you I have wanted to get wooden letters to put above my sons bed...but you know what, that's just as cute!

You have inspired me, now I just need some time!
