I bought the wooden M at Walmart and painted it white. Used Modge-Podge to put the scrapbook paper on and embellished it with some ribbon and scrapbooking accessories. I think it is the perfect size to put at a desk although I am sure there are tons of other uses, that's just what was in my head.
M loved her 'M' and said it was reminiscent of the big M that Mary Richards had in her apartment on the 'Mary Tyler Moore Show'. Remember that?
