painted letter holder

i bought an unfinished wood letter holder probably two years ago from the walnut hollow site on clearance. it has been sitting in its plain state on my desk, holding assorted papers and stamps and such.

i finally decided to paint it with a leftover cupful of pretty lavender paint that my cousin had blended the other day while crafting with me.

i used mod podge to adhere a strip of floral basic grey paper (the kioshi collection) to the front and to embellish the sides with purple glitter. then i trimmed the top edges with a krylon gold leafing pen.

i finished it off with gold adhesive gems, and a gold flower button that's glued to an alcohol-inked podgeable acrylic circle. it's just so much cuter now!
