12 Days of Christmas Noel Word Plaque


Hi, Lucy here with my second make using the gorgeous Graphic 45 '12 Days of Christmas' kit. For this Noel chipboard word plaque I paid another visit to my local pound store, and Yes, I do live there! It was covered in gingham fabric which you could peel off or leave on. I painted the plaque with red acrylic paint first and then alternated between a plain then a fussier choice of paper from the 8 x 8 pad for each letter, roughly cut them before gluing them on and sanded the edges. I then fussy cut pieces of holly and Christmas roses and pears from scraps I had left and added them to the papers on the N and the E and the L. I finished off with strips from the sticker sheet for the front, back, and edges of the plinth.

This is soooooooo beautiful, but this paper is sooo beautiful in it self, that we almost can´t do wrong with that, and this looks stunning.

No one would ever guess this started as a pound shop buy but it must have taken a bit of time to cut and sand all the pieces. Stunning xx
