Making cardboard lettering pieces is so much easier than it seems. So today I want to share with you how I made this little or that says “Love”
This last couple of days I've been sick and with a huge load of work, so today I decided to make something to relax me and take my mind off work, I was going to make this wall piece with cardboard and fabric at first but then I changed my mind and went with the super easy paint instead. (To make it easy in my cold)
This project only takes a few minutes and it can be done with cardboard (yes to recycling!) and covered with pretty much anything, I was also going to put paper flowers all over it but I guess that will be for another project =]
Of course, you can do freehand-lettering directly in your cardboard and just cut it, but this way is way faster!

I created this PDF template for all of you and I know everyone has different ways to transfer patterns, but the way I did this was that after I taped together the 3 parts, I cut the outside shape and marked in my cardboard, then carefully cut and mark the inside.
I cut the shape with an x-acto knife and used red paint to cover the front – just make sure you have a fairly thick cardboard because there are some delicate areas while you cut, since my cardboard was pretty thin, I used super 77 and glue 2 pieces together and it worked like a charm.
I tried in a different part of the house but totally loved the way it looked in the wall with our pictures =]
