Love Letters

I was inspired by a couple different blogs to make some letters to fill this empty frame. These are mine & hubby's 1st initials & the D is for our last name, this is why I titled it "Love Letters".  I was going to do yarn letters, but didn't want to spend the hour+ each letter. I decided to make them simple & just trace & glue romantic paper to go with my Paris theme on my wall.
 The letters in the frame. I simply nailed up the wood letters once I glued the paper on. The "C" was slightly crooked, so I put a glue dot behind it, totally did the trick! :)
 This is a view of the letters on my wall in my scrap nook to get a better idea where they're hangin'.

I'm linking up to these parties...

I love how these turned out, especially the paper you used on the "M." They fit in that frame perfectly too. I think the paper matches with the Paris theme better than yarn would. Cute!

Yeah, I agree! I like the paper better then the yarn for the Paris theme! :) Thanks!

This is such a cool idea, i love the idea of framing something that's actually separate from the frame, if ya know what i mean! :D
As soon as i find the right size wooden letters i'm trying this! :)
