Sanded Letters Tutorial

If you're anything like me, you have a ton of leftover chipboard and sticker letters. What to do? Here is a technique that you can use, no matter what color your leftovers are!

Start by adhering your shape to your work surface or scrap of cardstock. Temporary adhesive is fine. You can use either chipboard or thick stickers, but it must have a smooth surface- no glitter!
Next, lay a piece of paper over your shape. Thin, white-cored paper works best. Use a nail file to gently sand along the edges of your shape that is underneath your paper.

The result will look like this:

And here is a card I made using the above sanded number:
