That Four Letter Word

When we hear “four letter word” we automatically think of  some commonly used profane, vulgar and curse words. I thought it would  be a good exercise this Valentine’s week to focus on the beautiful and inspiring 4 letter words. 

“That Four Letter Word”can also be inspiring
-a patchwork poster-

Here’s a patchwork poster you can make for your room or office. 


You’ll Need
scrapbooking paper
white card stock paper
paper glue or double-sided tape
letter stencil
black acrylic paint or sharpie marker


Let’s begin…

  1. Cut base paper to tabloid size 11″ x 17″
  2. Divide paper into equally spaced columns. Make sure you know number of words you’re doing before dividing your paper
  3. Cut a pattern for the rectangle, and cut 24 rectangles of different colours and designs.
  4. Glue on or adhere rectangles with double-sided tape onto base paper. Make sure you leave at least half an inch of the white paper between rectangles
  5. Paint black stripe borders or draw with a sharpie 
  6. Using a letter stencil, trace the letters you need onto a white card stock paper. Cut and glue on

*Note: This can also just be done on the computer (like my example). Cut and paste patterns to build rectangles. You can also cut and paste striped borders from a  stripe pattern sample from the internet. Anyway, let your imagination fly!


You four-letter word poster is ready! Inspire yourself and others  to live life to the fullest!

    We don't have any money to pay you, but will certainly give you a credit. Would that be ok?
