12x24 Stack Wall Letter

    One comment per post please!*

    Why hello there :) I'm back from a nice holiday weekend! I hope yours was the same. Gearing up for a crazy but very exciting week! Can you feel the pre-CHA buzz in the air? I sure do :)

    I wanted to share a project that will be in our booth next week in Anaheim. I love how it turned out! 


    I made this "M" for my office from a cardboard box!! Yes, believe it :) 


    Love the scallop ruffles the most...and the burlap. Basically love it all :)

    First, I sketched a large M on a cardboard box. I made mine about 11 inches wide and 22 inches tall. I cut it out with an Xacto knife. First I wrapped it with burlap. I purchased a roll of burlap at Michaels that was made to make a burlap garland. I used mine to wrap my letter :) I used hot glue to keep it down on the back. Once that was done, I used our big 12x24 printed stack to make the big green M on top of the burlap.


    These 12x24 stacks are perfect for your cutting machines! I used my Sizzix Eclips and my Sure Cuts a Lot program to cut all of the scallops. Jessica at SVG Attic made me my own kit when I was on the hunt for a great border kit. HERE it is :) I cut lots of scallops out of the pink plaid paper from the same stack and added them to the top of my "M". I wish you could see it in person because the photos don't even do it justice! 

    I have a couple winners from last weeks blog posts. Congratulations to:

  56. awesome project! I have only been able to find your 12x24 stacks at a smaller store here "Craft warehouse" I've looked everywhere and no one else seems to carry it and the store that does has a real small selection.. 2 different stacks. I was wondering thow.. for the stack-a-holic challenges now Recollections stacks work is there only certain Recollections that work or ANY of them?? Thanks so much :)
