Home made tiny alphas

Hi fellow scrappers, someone asked me about my home made tiny alphas and how did I make them. It is really quite simple, I print out, on thin card, a page of alphas using something like Baby Block font which is a negative font on coloured background, this makes it easy to see where to cut. I then cover the back of the card in a wide double sided tape. You can then score through the card if you like but I don't usually bother just cut as and when I want.


I'll be back later with today's as seen and my diary for today.

Thanks! I'm the one who asked. I actually have some full sheets of label paper that go right into the printer so they would already be self-adhesive! I love this idea as it really expands the font possibilities, plus I could custom color the background - love it!

I'm heading right over to word to see what font I might try this with. Thanks!

Clever indeed!

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
