Our oldest niece, Jessica is expecting a baby a boy and today I'm going to her baby shower. As part of her gift, I embellished a paper mache letter "B" to match her registry theme ~ airplanes.
I've made several of these letters over the years. They are so simple to do and always a hit. I thought I'd include a quick little how-to:
Next, I glue the paper to the front of the letter form with a basic glue stick. Let it dry for about an hour then sand the edges of the paper letter with an emery board (or sandpaper) to make it look a little worn.
I'm still getting a lot of mileage out of my late mother-in-law's craft supplies. The airplane buttons are from her stash; so these belonged to Baby Brennan's Great-Grandma PJ. (I ended up not using the yellow jet because it was just 'too much'...)
The buttons I chose had knobs on the back of them, so my hubby drilled some holes for me. I put some glue on the base of the button and then popped it into the snug hole.
There's a baby boy coming to our family!
