Aaaaah!

I've just been notified that my {Jeepers Creepers Add-on} doesn't have the white paper in it! Sheesh! So sorry for the mix-up. Here is the updated link:

{Jeepers Creepers Add-on} take 2!

Oh! And I've got my computer back - yay! So I can finally upload my little project.

I totally got this idea from one of my CT friends over at GG Digital Designs, Megan. I don't think she's posted her adorable project yet but when she does I'll link it up so you can see it. Sooooo cute!!

I just got some unfinished wooden letters from Michael's, painted them black, printed out my papers and glued the paper on using Mod Podge. I traced the letters on the paper and then cut them out with scissors about 1/4'' from the line before I glued them on and then trimmed the paper with an X-Acto knife after the glue was dry. I then sanded the edges of my paper and the letters to distress it a little. I didn't put another layer of Mod Podge over the top of the letters. They were glued down good enough. I then took little pieces of ribbon and stapled the ribbons to the letters so they could hang together. I tied a knot in the top ribbon so I could hang the whole project up. I also found some cute little Halloween buttons in my stash and glued those on with some googly eyes and some more ribbons. I love it and it was sooooo easy! It took less than half a day - but that includes all the drying time!
