I didn't want to splurge on chipboard letters (since I knew some I would never use & others I would want to use many times). I found some cardboard letter stencils at WalMart & traced it on the back of the paper for this. Then after cutting out the "H", I sanded the paper edges.
I needed the "Happy Birthday" Word Window to be longer than the punch produces. Since I was going to sand/distress the paper somewhat anyway, I went ahead and gently folded it in half. Then I centered the fold past the center of the Word Window punch & punched out a longer strip.
The words "wish" and "joy" are attached on the left side; the words "Happy Birthday" are attached only on the right side.
I think I'm going to add some black brads to the bottom later.
