I bought a wonderful book of scrapbook paper and went to work picking papers and patterns. I had these poster frames around the house and repurposed them for this project.
I measured and decided the size of my letters then cut out a template so they'd all be the same size.
Then I drew my letters on the wrong side of the paper, making sure to draw them backwards.
You could use the computer to make fancy letters and use them as a template but I just chose to draw them out in block letters.
Measure twice, cut once, and glue onto your background. I used 11x14 frames, so I bought that size poster board to glue the name plate on.
Fun to do and quick. I finished one each night and now have a wonderful picture for their rooms.
I wish you enough (color)!
