AlpHaBeT SoUp!

Ever wonder what to do with all those random chipboard alpha's you have in your stash??? Well, here is a great project idea to help you use those random letters...even the z's, q's, and x's!!
To create this fun frame, just follow these simple steps. First, paint your frame one solid color. Next, glue your various chipboard letters all over the frame going every which way. Then, paint over the frame and chipboard letters using the same color of paint. This creates the illusion that the letters are actually carved out of the frame. Your final step is to lightly rub over the letters with a distress ink pad and apply a top coat of diamond glaze or clear sealer to give the frame a professional finish. This is such a fun and easy project to create! I hope it inspires you to create with your leftover alphas! Have a wonderful weekend!
