DIY Paper-wrapped Letters
DIY & Crafts
Start with cardboard or store bought wooden letters. I cut mine out myself out of an old cardboard box, much cheaper
Choose your paper patterns. They can be all the same , all different, anything you want.
Flip your paper upside down so you can see when you fold and the paper is the right way, but you'll also have to flip the letter too. MAKE SURE TO FLIP THE LETTER IF YOU FLIP THE PAPER
Cut the letters out in a general square, leaving at least a centimeter or two(a half of an inch) on the outside depending on cardboard thickness. Thicker cardboard, more space
Now, you'll want to cut where there are corners, like where my arrows are pointing.
Cut straight out
Now just glue and fold up
Here, where the paper sticks out, you can fold it back and just glue it down, or for the longer pieces like this you can fold it under the cardboard
See how this end sticks out? The letters dont go straight down so you'll need to fold the sides in and down.
That was a straighter letter. Here's an example of a curved letter, an O
So here, you'll have to cut at least here. I ended up cutting each section in half again, to make it curve.
For the inside start with a dot in the approximate center
And just cut lines out
I ended up having to cut those in half too. The more cuts, the easier and curvier
For letters with holes, dot in center, then just go from the dot out
More cuts=easier and curvier but takes longer
Anything sticking out after everything folded in= cut through the raised bump if there is one and glue the two resulting flaps down, or you can cut that part off, or just fold and glue
Thanks for reading! Review so i know what you want and how you did(if you did do it)
