Picture of Big Blocky Christmas Letters
Celebrate the holidays with a nice big, blocky and sparkly word on the mantle or shelf. It's a nice effect that looks much more solid than it is and can be made for very little money. Just how I like it.

You don't have the rest of the alphabet hanging around do you? I'd like to try your idea in so many ways. Thanks for sharing.

Nice idea for decor, FungusAmungus. And very clear instructions and photos. Thanks!

My motor skills are not as good as when younger. Could you put "tabs" on the edges of the letters in your patterns, to fold back to make taping the 3" pieces easier?

Definitely. You can easily add them yourself when cutting them out.
nice idea, thanks.
