I’m on a mission to fill up every single inch of wall space in my office, and of course, I love to make things myself. This project was super simple and took no time at all, and it added a little bit of extra sparkle over the door in my office. As y’all know, I am a sucker for anything gold, but gold and sparkly? Best! And yes, I’m sure that’s #Basic. But #IDontCare
... gimme all the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes and yoga pants, and take me to Target while you're at it! My office is the only space where I can decorate as crazy and kitschy as I want, so I'm taking full advantage!
And If you're really lucky and have a Silhouette Cameo, you can stop here and ditch this whole tutorial because there's no way you'd be caught dead tracing and hand-cutting letters. #AintNobodyGotTimeFoDat. I really need to get on your level and buy one. Or, Silhouette America, if you're out there reading this, feel free to send one. I do accept gifts.
The very first thing I did was spray the wood with white spray paint so it could dry while I worked on the letters.
To reverse letters/phrases in Word, follow these instructions:
1. Open Word
2. Click the "Insert" tab
3. Click the "Text Box" drop down box and select "Simple Text Box"
4. Select the font and font size you want
5. Type the phrase or letters in the text box
6. Right click the corner of the text box and select "Format Shape"
7. Select "3-D Rotation"
8. In the box to the right of the "X," type "180"
You will now see that your words or phrase have been reversed, and they are now ready to print.
Once you have all of your printouts, highlight the back of each letter using a pencil. This allows for easy transfer to your scrapbook paper.
|I jumbled all of my letters to save space on the paper!|
|To cut out the middles, I used my x-acto knife to cut a triangle in the middle to make it easy to get my scissors in there.|
