|scarf: knit by me; belt: thrifted; earrings: my wonderful husband|
i hope you guys don't think i'm overdoing it with the cowl scarf two days in a row. if you do, you're in for some disappointment, because this thing is Comfy with a capital "C" and i have no intention of giving it up anytime soon. don't worry, this is just what i do. when i first buy or make something, i want to wear it all the time for about two weeks, and then it disappears for a while. so on the up side, you only have to endure about twelve more outfits with it.
wanna see what i did with my friday night? well, about twenty minutes of my friday night; this one's quick and easy, folks.
i went shopping tonight for some random things (including my 30th pick! yes, i did adhere to my original mustard long-sleeve tee idea, although the search was excruciating, which is a story for another time...) and i picked up this small cardboard block "A" from Joann Fabrics for $2 with a 50% off coupon.
from there, cut your next two pieces to place on either side of the first piece. after doing so, glue all three pieces in place on the letter.
note: only use a small amount of glue, and make sure it's spread evenly. you don't want to create lumps and/or wrinkles in your paper:
|this is me faking it. i am most definitely useless with my left hand. somebody needed righty to press the shutter.|
|okay, good work! you're done!|
yes, that's better. now cut around all of the edges of your letter:
finally, using your brush, apply a thin, even coat of mod podge (i used a matte finish). this will help the edges of the paper blend together more and lay nice and flat on your letter. you may also want to use your fingers to smooth the paper over the edges of the letter.
voila! now stand back and admire:
