  • Time:2 hours

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Paint sides and entire top surface of letters with Cloud paint. Let dry.
  • 2
    Place tape across the center of the letters. Paint bottom half of letters with a mixture of Cloud and Wild Blueberry. Remove stencil tape and let dry.
  • 3
    Choose die cuts to place across the center of the letters where the paint line is located. Brush Mod Podge on the back of the die cut and on the area of the letter where the die cut is going. Press in place; smooth out to remove any air bubbles. Repeat for other die cuts, making sure that Mod Podge is both on the back of the die cut and on the area that the die cut is being placed.
  • 4
    When dry, turn over letter on cutting mat. Press letter down against mat and use craft knife to trim away any of the die cut that is hanging over the edges of the letters.
  • 5
    Add 1-2 additional coats of Mod Podge, making sure to seal the edges of the die cuts that were cut away against the edges of the letter.
  • 6
    Option: for a more sparkly look use Glitter Mod Podge. For a more "artsy" effect, use Brush Stroke Mod Podge, which will show more texture with the brush strokes.
  • 7
    Use different die cuts based on interests…there's mini die cuts with Outdoor, Animals, Kids, US Travel and Sports themes!
