"Spring" Decor is all the rage it seems, and why wouldn't it be after a long cold winter. Here is what I came up with.
I love how it turned out.

Here is what you will need:
8" chipboard letters found mine at Hobby Lobby
scrapbook papers
mod podge
hot glue/gun
and ribbons and such for embelishments.
First I traced all of my letters backwards onto the back of my papers. Then cut them out.
Next I painted the sides and backs of my letters. I did mine all the same, Lisa Pink (delta). I forgot to take a picture but this is pretty self explanatory.

Once dry I used mod podge to glue on the paper and then sanded and distressed the edges just a touch. Then I set out to make each letter unique, using ribbons, buttons, hemp and a little purple decoupage egg.

Here is a close up of my "G" with a little nest. I just love this one.

Once done I hot glued all letters to a board that I painted Ivory (delta) and distressed the edges just a little. I love how *SPRING* turned out.
