Letters for a Friend

My next door neighbor who is also one of my besties had a baby about six months ago.  She is Gorgeous and her name is GRACE!  When she was born I bought some super curly Q letters for her room..
but since it wasn't painted I waited on doing them.. but yesterday I found my incentive to get started.. yup .. a SALE at Joann's.  Scrapbook paper was on sale for $2.97 per book and I found these beautiful vintagey shabby chic books
 and fell in LOVE.. and so did my nieghbor.
So here are my GRACE letters:

Want to make some Mod Podge letters too?  Well here's how!
I started by painting my the outside edges of my letters pink.
Then I laid them face down onto the scrapbook paper that I wanted and using my cutting mat I cut around them with a razor knife.
Once the letter was cut
I applied my Mod Podge and pushed out all of the air bubbles, making sure that the paper was fully glued. 
 Once dry I sanded the edges so that any roughness was gone. 
They looked pretty..
but I thought that they needed a little something extra.  So I used the punched flowers in my new books and added them to the letters. 
Here are some close ups of the letters!

Hopefully Debbie will love her surprise when she gets home.. I know I do~
