(Sorry about the quality of the picture. I forgot to take one until after it was dark out. It is hard to capture a window shot with the glare of the kitchen lights!)
I picked four fall colors of scrapbook paper from my stash. Using Word I ran each sheet through and printed out the letters using font size 200. I then found a pattern for a maple leaf on the net and enlarged it to the size I was looking for. I then layed the leaf pattern centered over the letters and then cut out my letters into the shape of a leaf. I folded over the stem and used double stick tape to secure it over a piece of twine.
Easy to make and I am so happy with the simple way it looks.
