"Love Letters" Mixed Media Home Decor Project with VIDEO TUTORIAL ~ Scraps of Elegance February Kit

I've been enjoying creating home decor projects lately, so was thrilled when Melinda announced that she is now offering an Off the Page Add On with each Scraps of Elegance kit. 

The 3-D love letters in this month's OTP Add On were so much fun to work with!!

I've create a step by step video tutorial showing how I've transformed these letters:

Into these:
This would be a perfect wedding or engagement gift, Valentine's decor,
or if you're like me, an every day home decor piece.
