Oversized Letters Home Decor


Hello! It's Melanie here today sharing this Oversized Letters Home Decor project and Peony flower using Linen card stock, Stardream Metallic card stock and Chipboard (0.5 thickness).  I created these letters in Cricut Design Space using the Cricut Explore to deep cut the chipboard layers.  The font used is Cricut Alphabet and the size of each letter is 8 x 11 inches so it works well with paper that is 8.5 x 11 inches.  I cut 2 layers of Chipboard (0.05 thickness) and 1 layer of Linen Card Stock.  The flower is a 3-D Peony using Stardream card stock colors from the sample pack.


Once the letters were cut, I adhered the layers together to create a 3-D image.


Then I assembled the letters to form the word HOME.


The Peony added some flare to this project.  I love making diecut flowers and the Stardream Metallic card stock has the perfect shine after curling the paper. 


I lightly sprayed my flower diecuts with water (makes it easier to manipulate) and then curled thepaper to form a flower.  The diecuts have tabs so you know exactly where to glue the petals.


I adhered the flower to the "O" and hung on the wall next and also placed on the fireplace.  


This would also look great on a gallery wall!


I hope you enjoyed today's project!  Be sure to pick up the items from the CutCardStock.com store to make one for your home decor!
