Paper-Covered Kraft Letters

Today's Make-and-Do Monday is quick and easy; just grab premade kraft paper letters at your local craft store and you are off!

Making great-looking graphic statements is a cinch! Whether you are using one letter, initials, or spelling out an entire name, letters are fun to hang on walls or stand up on shelves or bookcases. Spelling out a child's name in the nursery is always popular, and this is a quick and easy way to add some spice to your walls.

Items you will need:
-Kraft paper letters (These can be found at Jo-Ann craft; I got the 12" letters)
-12"x12" Scrapbooking paper (One sheet for each letter)
-Glue stick
-Acrylic Paint (Color of your choice, for painting sides and back of letters)

Optional items if you are hanging the letters on the wall:
-Hot glue gun

1. Paint all sides and the back of your letters with the paint color of your choice.
2. Lay the letters front-side down on the back side of your scrapbooking paper.
3. Trace the letters onto the back of the paper and cut the letters out.
4. Glue the paper of the front of the letters with the glue stick.
5. You are done! Wasn't that easy?

If you want to hang the letters on the wall, hot glue two paperclips to the back of the letters on either side and hang them on the letters with nails.
