Materials for Love Letters

Attach Paper to Chipboard

Trace the chipboard letter on the backside of the patterned paper, and cut out paper with scissors or craft knife. Use a foam brush to apply mod podge to the paper letter and adhere it to the chipboard letter. Allow to dry. Use emery board to smooth edges and remove any excess paper from letter.
