How to Make a Faux Letter Board

First it was light boxes then felt boards, and I have to say I love my felt board. They aren’t cheap however for a decent looking one you are looking at £30-£50 pounds.

I was playing with my We R Memory keepers trim and score board the other day and ended up making this faux version so I thought it would make a cool blog post.

Also not sure if it is obvious but I have been buying a lot of plants recently! Aren’t they fab – proud plant lady!

What you will Need 

A4 frame

Dovecraft Textured Card – I used Cream

We R Memory Keepers Trim & Score board

Simply Creative Black Glitter Stickers

How to Make

Remove the plastic or glass from your frame and just save the frame and backboard. I then scored the full sized 12×12 card all the way across. I didn’t cut first just encase it shrunk when it was scored.

Once scored all the way down use the back board to draw around the 12×12 paper, trim it to size with your Memory Keepers board.

Put the paper in the frame and then use the alphabet stickers to spell out your quote. I actually used the plastic out of the frame to spell out the quote and overlay it on the frame to make sure it is lined up correctly.

When you are happy with the layout, stick your letters down. Once you are bored with the quote in your frame you can just swop out another piece of card. Have fun with different colour card and some of the fun designs of alphabet stickers.
