We’ve been working on really branching out in terms of our tutorials. Not only are we doing tutorials for supplies we sell, but also general craft tutorials to bring you the very best in how-tos! Today we decided to work on wrapping a kraft paper letter with fabric. Our eventual intent is to make signage in our new and improved retail store using these letters! Here’s a sneak peek 🙂
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Kraft paper letter (purchasable at Hobby Lobby, JoAnn, Michaels etc). I’d take a coupon though because these things ain’t cheap if you don’t have one!
- Glue gun and glue
- Fabric (I used about a half yard for this letter)
The first thing you’ll do is set your fabric down flat and cut or rip it into strips about 2″ wide.
Once you’ve done that just set the strips aside. You’ll cover the ends of the letter first so go ahead and glue a smidge on both sides.
Simply wrap the fabric around and continue down the other points, wherever they are on your letter.
Once you’ve glued the ends and are happy with them you’ll wrap fabric strips around the rest of the letter like so:
I continued all the way around each point.
I didn’t wrap the fabric super tight because I wanted the letter to have a little depth. You could certainly pull the fabric tighter and really get it to lay super flat. Here’s our final product!
Eventually this’ll say “ELASTIC” in our new office haha, but it’ll take me a while to get there 🙂
Enjoy! Check back this week for more fun tutorials 🙂
