I L-O-V-E everything about Valentine's Day, but mostly I love that it's an excuse to make obnixously girly crafts. Also it's basically the only time of year that you can pair red and pink together and still be socially acceptable. Lately I've been seeing alot of polka dot scrapbook paper...and I'm a sucker for polka dots. When I ran across some scrapbook covered letters I knew I needed to make some for Valentine's Day. On my trip to the Hobby Lobby I picked up some paper mache letters and scrapbook paper. I'm really happy with how they turned out and they look so cute on my mirror. Such a cute craft idea for Valentine's Day.

-Paper Mache Letters
-White Paint (I used white spray paint)
-Scrapbook Paper
-Glue Runner

1. Outline letters on your scrapbook paper. Remeber to put the back of your letter on the front of the scrapbook paper, to ensure the right side is out when you glue it.
2. Cut out letters.
3. Spray paint the paper mache letters. Leaving plenty of time to dry. (I cut my letters out first so I didn't get any pencil markings on my nicely painted letters).
4. Glue runner the back of letters, be sure to get all of the corners.
5. Attach the paper to the front of the paper mache letters? Press firmly.

Enjoy your L-O-V-E letters!
