So, what do I do with those leftover letters? Usually I alter them to be the letter I need. This works really well with sans serif fonts.
First, I layout the title and fill in the missing letters with substitutes that I think I can alter. Like this...
Then with a few snips, Q's become O's and T's become L's and O's become U's. And voila!
I also like to use multiples of the same letter in words like "hmmmm..." or "argghhh" like I did here in my December Daily.
These tips are my go-to-solutions for using up letter stickers but I've found some pretty fantastic ideas that I wanted to share, too. I haven't tried them yet but they're definitely on my to-try list.
- This blog post by Ashli Oliver (Little Purple Maibox). You must see how Ashli uses every letter in a pack of Thickers. It's genius! I'm definitely going to do this.
- I love how Donna Downey uses letter stickers in her Collage Monday series especially this one and this one.
- And here's another one. Uppercase D's as ladybug bodies? Uppercase B's as butterfly wings? So smart! And there's also a tutorial for turning letterstickers into flowers.
Thanks for stopping by!
