OSH tip #40 - Using die-cut letters

 
This will just be a quick post today :)
 
Years back when I purchased my first alphabet die-cuts I did a lot of die-cutting eventhough I didn't need all the letters. And believe it or not I actually saved all those extra letters!
 
A couple of years ago I even sorted them and bought these little containers...one for A's, one for B's and so on. And still I didn't get to use them!
 
Then Operation Skriv Hjem came out with Tip #40 the other week:
"Use those alphabet or number stickers that you never use".
 
I have already made a card with some of my (old, old, old) alphabet stickers. You can see it HERE

Then I came to think of my die-cut letters - those I (also) never use. It was a perfect opportunity to pull out those containers and get to work :)

 
I admit it was a bit time consuming as these had to be glued on. First I laid out the letters in a suitable pattern and then hurried to glue them on.

For the sentiment I used a die-cut banner and a matching stamp from Simon Says Stamp.


Have a nice day everyone

  3. TIHI - velkommen i klubben - præcis det samme gjorde jeg da jeg kun havde et par alfabeter og altid regnede med at kunne bruge ekstra bogstaver. Selv det med de små æsker og sorteringen skete her. Mine er nu i mellemtiden foræret til en børnehaveklasse - men skønt at OSH ideen kan få gang i dine. FINT kort og lækre farver.
