Here is the cardboard letter I picked up Joann Fabrics:
First I painted the entire letter with white craft paint. I took my several coats to get a solid application with none of the brown peeking through. Next, I used those little round office stickers (What are they used for anyway? Mine were left over from a garage sale.) and covered the letter like so:
Once I had my dots attached, I used pale blue craft paint that I already owned to cover the S. I only did one coat, but applied it very thick. As I worked my way down the letter, I removed the stickers as I went. I simply painted over each sticker then made sure my fingers were clean and peeled the circle off.

After getting all my bricks cut, I began the process of laying them out on the queen-sized bed in my guest room. This was the biggest space I had to lay them out that wasn't in a high-traffic area (like somewhere on the floor in the kitchen/living room). My husband pointed out, though, that maybe I should have taken the multi-colored quilt off the bed before laying everything out to really give me a sense of how all the colors would look together. Yeah, that would have made more sense. Oh well...here is how we're looking right now:
I'm pleased with how all the colors are going together and, even though they don't match perfectly, I feel like there's still some harmony between all of them. Laying them out was a lot of fun, too. I feel like if I had it to do again, I would probably get something completely different than what I have now, which is kind of fun.

Here are my materials for this project:
Next, I cut out the newly-drawn and improved images using scissors and my Exact-o knife (to cut out the handle).
Here is your final product:
