While in the States recently, I mentioned I paid a visit to my favourite paper shop over there - Paper Source. While there, I picked up some blank paper letters about 10" high for my little boy's room. You can see them on their website here (and yes they do ship outside the USA), and here's what they look like blank:
They were fantastic value at just $3.00 each and I bought some scrapbook papers that weren't too thick at the time to cover them with. Well, I got papering tonight, and here's the result (sorry for a not-great-quality image). Lots of PVA and sticky hands and cutting later, and VOILA!!
My little boy picked out the papers, and they were fairly easy to do. I figure I can re-paper them again in a few years when they'll need to be blue/red/white to support whichever football team will be the favourite :) A great project and I can't wait to hang them on the wall of his bedroom. What do you think? Do you like them? There's a great video on the Paper-source site too which shows how to paper them with handmade papers, or paint them and add embellishments like flowers, blossoms or gems.
