Designer Tips

  • After covering your wood letters with patterned paper, use a file to smooth the edges.
  • Give the petals of your flowers, the leaves, and the wings of your butterflies more dimension by bending them upward. For the flower petals, use a pencil to curl.

 

Bonus Idea

Use the doilies all the way around to create a fun, off-set scalloped background.
