Papier mache letters are a great way to personalize your baby's room. They're lightweight, shatterproof, and can be embellished in an infinite number of ways. But if you're a total design geek (we mean that in a good way!) when you see the selection in the craft store, your first reaction might be, "What? Only helvetica?!" Never fear. We found an awesome tutorial to show you how to make your own letters in any font you can think of.

Zan at MeLikeStuff made her own fancy letter Z and shows step by step how to create letters using cardboard, newspaper, and paste. Check it out here. She says the curvier parts of the letters are more difficult, but it sure does seem worth it when we see her result. It looks awesome, and it keeps our font hypersensitivity from flaring up.
