So your sweet husband/boyfriend/special other decided to take it upon himself to do a little scrappy shopping for you for Christmas and decided to get you Thickers. A bunch of Thickers. Only problem is he decided to get you a lifetime supply of white ones figuring they would go with anything. Well guess what — he was right.
Today Misty Buck shows us how to take those basic white foamy alphabet stickers and alter them to suit any crafty color need.
