Initial Impression

You all know that I love letters. Mostly because I think typeface is beautiful, but the fact that they’re also quick and easy doesn’t hurt either.

(Hobby Lobby magnet, tied on to a plain white box.)

You can make initials out of whatever you’ve got laying around.

Fabric.

Pennies.

You could even get all hoity toity and use bedazzled ornaments like Martha does.

When I saw this idea I was inspired to go even bigger…..without getting too big…..that “R” is kinda creeping me out.

I printed up my letter on the computer, then cut it out using the fanciest cardboard I could find.

You could skip the cardboard, but I wanted it sturdy enough that it wouldn’t rip. I grabbed a book from my stash, otherwise known as “Things Our Dog Chewed Up That I Can Still Use”, glued it to the cardboard, then cut it out.*

* If your paper isn’t as transparent as mine, you could glue onto the printed side of the box, which would give you a plain white back. I just did both sides.

Add some ink to the edges if you want, punch a hole on top, and tie it on.
