Paper Letters

The brightly colored letters shown here are easy and fun to make. They are cut from plain and patterned cardstock. You can use them as birthday accents.

Approximate Time:


  • white and colored cardstock
  • patterned cardstock
  • ruler, craft knife, glue stick
  • embellishments



  1. Draw the letter in your chosen font on white cardstock. Use as a template to cut out each letter twice from colored and patterned cardstock.
    Note: You can print out the name twice in your chosen font and enlarge on a photocopier to the size you want.
  2. To make the spacers between the letters, cut 2 1/4 inch wide strips from colored cardstock, making them slightly smaller than the letter so that they won't show when they are glued in place.
    Score and crease a half inch border down each side of the strips.
  3. Apply glue to the tops of the spacers and attach to the letter.

  5. Embellish the colored letter with flowers.
  6. When you stick the two letters together with the spacers, place the letters upright to ensure that when they are joined together they stand upright.
