Letter Ornaments

I made these for my family. Funny that all my in laws names start with an M. My sister and I married to M last names and my sister in law married to a M last name.
I found this idea on Pinterest. I however did not follow the instructions they gave and just looked at the picture for inspiration.
For the letters I used a thick cardboard that I found at Hobby Lobby for 99 cents. I used Modge Podge to attach paper then cut around the letter. I sanded down the edges with a nail file to smooth them out. I took Stampin Up ink pads and sponge wedges and inked the entire sides and the edge of the front. I Modge Podged the sides first because the ink bleeds on the paper is you arent careful. After it dried a bit then I Modge Podged the entire front of the letter.
When the letter is completely dry I took an eyelet screw and screwed it into the top. Add ribbon to hang.
The little white tag is from the office supply store or crafty store. I used an inch stamp from Inspired stamps and stamped it several times then wrote the family name on it. I wish I had prettier hand writing but it is what it is.
These were a hit. Thanks for stopping by and Merry Christmas!!
