With the impending arrival of Baby A, I have been busy crafting up a storm. There is nothing like the drive to get a nursery ready to serve as a great excuse to do all those craft projects you’ve been letting sit on the side burner.
This was one of my latest craft projects and it was one of the easiest. I’ve seen it pinned so many times and I’m sure you have too, but I wanted my own version nonetheless. I used my KNK Zing to cut out the Alphabet letters, but you can just as easily buy pre-cut letters (or stickers) in two or three colors to stick on yourself. I used three colors/designs total – blue for the majority of the letters, a heart design for the “I” and “U”, and pink for the heart.
Here is how it turned out:
I used a canvas frame I purchased at Michael’s on clearance for $7 and three pieces of scrapbook paper on sale for fifty cents each. This puts the cost of my nursery pizzazz at $8.50. I already had glue dots on hand, which I used to adhere the letters to the canvas. It is not a permanent solution, which I liked, because I can see myself reusing this canvas frame for a different purpose in the future (like many years in the future, so I’m not planning on changing it up any time soon).
Have you made ABC art like this before?
P.S. Yes there are random paper butterflies in this picture. They are part of a future project!
