Other Materials:

Copy paper

Tools:
Serrated knife
old newspapers
large cardboard box (for spraying)
ruler
scissors
permanent medium point marker

 

Instructions:

  1. Decide letters to use. On computer, find desired block style font and print letters and an ampersand as large as possible to fit on 8 1/2″ x 11″ copy paper. (If not large enough, use photocopier to enlarge, in increments of 200% until reaching correct size.)
  2. Use scissors to cut out patterns. Arrange them to fit on one sheet of Foam and trace them with marker. Repeat with second sheet of Foam. Cut out with serrated knife, keeping knife perpendicular to surface so that Foam edges don’t angle in or out. (Note: The reason for using two thinner sheets instead of one thicker sheet is for ease in cutting. It’s a little more difficult to keep the knife blade straight when going through thicker Foam, but it can be done if you prefer.)
  3. Use scraps of foam to gently sand any rough edges. Align one letter onto its mate and check the fit, sanding as needed. Then, apply a generous layer of glue stick over top surface of bottom letter, letting pores fill with glue. Press top letter into place, aligning edges. Repeat with other letter and ampersand to create thick letters. (Note: Check to be sure letters and ampersand will stand upright. If not, carefully trim a little off bottoms to flatten.)
  4. In a well-ventilated, newspaper-covered area (inside cardboard box) lightly spray letters with two light coats Super Silver and let dry.
  5. Set one letter on its back. Cover just the front by unrolling Diamond Wrap and setting it on top, over left side of letter. Use scissors to cut across Diamond Wrap to separate piece from roll. Repeat on right side. Generously apply glue stick to top surface and set pieces onto letter so that edges just meet in middle. Then, use scissors to trim excess Diamond Wrap from edges of letter. Repeat with fronts of other letter and ampersand. Let dry.Tip:  Incorporate the bridal colors by changing the spray color or the color of the Diamond Wrap!
