Chipboard Name Sign

I made this wall hanging for my friends 12-year old daughter, Gracie, as a Christmas present a few years ago. Her favorite color was purple. The letters are chipboard. I traced the letter first and then cut them out by hand. Then, used 2-way Glue to attach the paper to the chipboard and filed the edges with an emery board. A Crop-A-Dile was used to punch holes in the letters to attach the ribbon. I used hemp twine with a small metal buckle at the ends for easy hanging. When you hang it you also need some sticky dots or something to keep the letters spaced out (they don't hang in a perfect U-shape). For a quicker project, you can ink or paint the letters and then file the edges to give a worn look.

Materials: 8.5" pre-cut chipboard letters, MME Magnolia paper, We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile, Stampin' Up Hodgepodge Hardware, Emery Board, Hemp Twine
