How to Use Your Love Letters Leftovers

Last week, we introduced the rose gold monogram Love Letter kits and shared some useful tips and tricks to assemble these like a crafting pro. One of the great things about these kits is that they come with more die-cut florals and stickers than you are likely to use on a single letter, which means that once your letter is complete and on display, you’ll have extra pieces to use on other projects—music to every crafter’s ears, right?! Today, we have some ideas on how you can use those leftover pieces on a few other paper crafting creations.

For starters, each kit comes with a 6″ x 6″ sheet of rose gold foil letter stickers. Once you’ve completed your Love Letter, you will surely have a good amount of stickers left over. Whatever you do, don’t throw them away! This gorgeous rose gold sticker alphabet works wonders in creating card sentiments and scrapbook titles!

As for the leftover floral pieces and banners, consider these as yet another tool in your crafting arsenal to use as embellishments and accents for any project.

Check out what we came up with below.

Each kit comes with one sturdy chipboard letter base, one paper and rose gold overlay piece, die-cut banners and floral embellishments, and rose gold foil alphabet stickers to create the word or name of your choice.

As you assemble these letters, here are a few tips to keep in mind.

Love Letters #closetomyheart #ctmh #love #letters #monogram #chipboard #paper #crafting #national #month #January

1. The first thing is that you don’t have to use all of the pieces included in the letter kit. Depending on how you plan to use the letter, you might opt out of the banner or some of the flowers and succulents. The number of die-cuts you want to use will depend on the shape of your letter and the length of the word you’ve chosen. Remember, sometimes less is more.

2. If you are using the banner for a word or a name, add the alphabet stickers to the banner before attaching it to the letter. It’s also easier if you begin your word in the middle and work your way out. This way, you can make sure your word is centered and you have enough room for all of your letters prior to attaching any additional embellishments.

3. As you assemble the flowers, consider using your finger, a pencil, or any soft round edge to help shape some of the petals. (Not all of your flowers have to have curved petals). Also, when arranging them on your letter, do so before attaching them. Try arranging your flowers in triangles of color. If you’re not quite sure how to do that, look at the instructions insert including in your kit. There, you will find a completed example for each letter and the ampersand. (It’s okay to copy. We won’t tell!)

4. For those of you who want to take this project up a notch, there’s always some wiggle room. Look how we used a handful of additional products (not included in the kit) to quickly and easily embellish the flowers. The petals edges were given a pop of color with a sponge and some ink. We added sparkles and pearls to the flowers’ centers, and used the brand-new Bashful shimmer brush for a touch of extra shine on the green succulent petals.

These Love Letters are so versatile. Put them in frame, a wreath, or hang them on their own. Create words, names, or initials. They work in your living room, a bedroom, a nursery—really anywhere!
