K is for Kim

What do you get the birthday girl that has everything?


You make her something!  Every girl likes their initial, right? 

My girlfriend Kim just turned one of the bedrooms in her home into a closet, and this will fit right in!

I can't get over how easy this was to make.  I bought one of those 3D cardboard box letters at JoAnn's, some cute scrapbook paper (this one has a velvet-like texture), and some Mod Podge, which by the way, is the BEST STUFF EVER!

I covered the surface of the K with Mod Podge and smoothed the paper down.  Then I flipped over the K and used a small craft knife to cut away the extra paper.  I painted the sides and back with some black paint that had little flecks of glitter in it.

This letter is on the larger size at 24 inches. It will make a fabulous statement in her home.  With a different scrapbook paper, this would be so sweet in your little girl's room.

Yay! I can't wait to give it to her!
