Crate Paper - Altered Project

Hi everyone! This week on the Crate Paper blog, we are showcasing altered projects. Today I am going to show you how I made this altered piece for my daughter's room, using the new Wonder collection.
I started with this plain wood "K" that I picked up at Target. I knew I wanted to cover it with patterned paper, so I chose a neutral pattern from the collection. I also gathered up some Mod Podge and a brush.

I painted a thin coat of Mod Podge on the letter, using the brush.

I then placed the wood piece face down on the reverse side of the patterned paper. I let the glue dry for just a few minutes, then used an X-acto knife to trim the edges of the paper.

After all the paper was trimmed off, I used a nail file to sand the edges down a bit.

Once I made sure all the paper was smooth over the piece, I wanted to add a bit of embellishment. I used these gold glitter circle stickers from the Wonder collection to create a polka dot pattern on the letter. On the stickers that were over the edge, I used scissors to trim them off.

And here's a look at the finished product! I layered up some chipboard, tags, felt and stickers to complete the piece. I also added a yellow tassel at the top of the tag for some texture. My daughter loves it! She immediately took it into her room and put it up on her bookshelf.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today! Have a great week!
