INSTRUCTIONS

Choose letters to wrap (see pages 3 and 4). Using printer or photo-copier, copy letters at 500% to measure approx 6½" [16.5 cm] high, or desired size. Trim paper around letters, leaving approx 2" [5 cm] border.
Place wrong side of paper against foam core board and glue in position (allowing room for all desired letters). Using ruler when necessary for straight edges and craft knife, carefully cut out letter shape (this will be good for Mom to help).
Bernat® Boa™ Yarn-wrapping: Cut lengths of yarn approx 60" [152.5 cm] long. Begin at bottom edge of letter. Tape end of yarn to wrong side of foam core letter to secure. Wrap yarn evenly around foam core to cover keeping ‘eyelash’ of yarn pointing down. Keep the wraps as straight as you can so the yarn makes even stripes. Don’t wrap too tightly or you may bend board. Join new ends with tape on wrong side. You may have to cut yarn lengths shorter to fit into smaller spaces of individual letters. Use white glue to secure strands at ends of letters and at center of sections with wide wraps. Allow glue on letters to dry thoroughly. Remove tape if desired. Optional: You may use straight pins to carefully pin ends of yarn into foam core board.
Bernat® Mosaic™ Yarn-wrapping: Cut lengths of yarn approx 60" [152.5 cm] long. Begin at bottom edge of letter. Tape end of yarn to wrong side of foam core letter to secure. Wrap yarn evenly around foam core to cover. Keep the wraps as straight as you can so the yarn makes even stripes. When wrapping letters with multiple lower sections (i.e. A, H, K, M, N, R, W and X), you may want to match the yarn stripes on each side by allowing lengths of similar colors for wrapping. Don’t wrap too tightly or you may bend board. Join new ends with tape on wrong side. You may have to cut yarn lengths shorter to fit into smaller spaces of individual letters. Use white glue to secure strands at ends of letters and at center of sections with wide wraps. Allow glue on letters to dry thoroughly. Remove tape if desired.
