A Little Home Decor

Hi there, I just finished up a project I made for my granddaughter, Alanna. As soon as I saw Sherry Baldy's cute Alphabet Besties I knew what I wanted to make. I had to have a bit of patience waiting for Sherry to do all of the letters I needed -lol- which turned out to be just 3! Anyway,  here is what I came up with...

 I printed out the letters, 2 to a page, so they are about 6" high. I mirror imaged the last "A" so the cute little Bestie would be on the end to add balance to the whole thing. I coloured them with Copic Markers. I then fussy cut them out and modge podged them to a piece of old white foam board. I ended up puttting about 3 coats of modge podge on the whole thing. Then I cut 1" strips from a piece of black foam board to make the frame, gluing it to the edge of the white foam board. I used an exacto knife to cut the foam board and an emery board to file the edges smooth. Even though it is long, nearly 2', it weighs barely anything so it will be easy to hang up in Alanna's room.
Here are a few more photos...

These cute little Besties are perfect for Alanna; a soon to be teen, who loves fashion, hair and all things girly! 
This was a fun project to do; a bit of a challenge since there were only 3 letters to work with but I am pleased with how it turned out and think it will be a nice addition to Alanna's bedroom decor.
Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.
