How to Make It:

  1. Cut the Papers: Trace a front for each letter onto the wrong side of the patterned papers; also trace a back, flopping the "N," "E," and "L." Add a 3¿8-inch border around the inside and outside of all letters. Cut out the shapes. Make a diagonal cut into each corner; clip into the curved areas of the "O." Cut 1-inch-wide strips from the green paper.
  2. Decorate the Letters: Glue the paper front and back to each papier-mache letter, folding the borders around the edges. Cover the sides with the 1-inch-wide strips.
