I combined coordinating scrapbook papers and wooden letters to make a gift for my precious little sister's 17th birthday. I painted the letters white (for some reason, white spray paint totally didn't work on these - I guess it's because of the cardboard-esque texture), then traced the letters onto paper and cut the paper letters out and affixed the paper to the fronts of the letters. After that I decorated each letter with various notions using regular white Elmer's Glue. Finally, I covered the letters with the shiny Mod Podge and glued them to a length of ribbon.

I decided I couldn't go wrong with a basic white.
