12 Days of Christmas Noel Word Plaque

Hi, Lucy here with my second make using the gorgeous Graphic 45 '12 Days of Christmas' kit. For this Noel chipboard word plaque I paid another visit to my local pound store, and Yes, I do live there! It was covered in gingham fabric which you could peel off or leave on. I painted the plaque with red acrylic paint first and then alternated between a plain then a fussier choice of paper from the 8 x 8 pad for each letter, roughly cut them before gluing them on and sanded the edges. I then fussy cut pieces of holly and Christmas roses and pears from scraps I had left and added them to the papers on the N and the E and the L. I finished off with strips from the sticker sheet for the front, back, and edges of the plinth.
