I picked something extremely simple for my first craft so you can literally do this in your sleep (you probably wouldn't want to do the cutting part in your sleep though...)
I bought all of my supplies at Michaels:
5 small wooden letters - $0.49 each
1 scrapbook paper - $0.59
1 small canvas - $1.49
Mod podge - already had but I think it's about $5
GRAND TOTAL = $4.53 (without mod podge; with mod podge it would be $9.53)
When I say simple, I mean, I did it in about 10 minutes last night while watching the Bachelor and wondering why Michelle was still on the show. I'm going to start off slow just in case there's some first time crafters out there. I haven't decided whether I'm going to paint the canvas yet but this little baby will hang above my craft table that's still in the garage. I'm going to make some more that say "sew," "scrap" and "thrift" and maybe some other fun word.
I traced the letters onto the back of the scrapbook paper and cut them out.
Then I mod-podged the paper onto the letter.
I also mod-podged over the finished letter to give it a little umphh (spell check?)
You could also put it on a wooden plaque (they also sell those at Michaels)
But I opted for the canvas style. Like I said, I'm probably going to paint the canvas but I want to finish the other ones so I can really make a decision.
TA-DA! That was IT! I told you it was crazy simple... hopefully not too simple! I know there are some professional mod-podgers out there!
Now for the fun part...
