Create bubble letters using a pencil. Then design them with patterns and drawings that represent you. Finally outline your letter with a black marker so they really pop.


Step 1:
To create bubble letters, write your name as you normally would using capital letters. Make sure to leave a little extra space around each letter and that your letters aren’t too close to the edge of the paper. Draw a bubble outlining each letter, following the shape of the letter. Erase the original letters once your bubble letters are complete.

Step 2:
Fill each letter with a drawing that represents something unique about yourself. It could be your favorite food, your favorite thing to do, your favorite sport, the city or town that you live in, your favorite place to go, anything that is part of who you are. Each letter should show a different unique part of who you are. Make sure that you don’t draw any details too tiny.

Step 3:
Use markers to color in your designs. Make sure you color in each letter completely and don’t leave any white space. If you have a lot of small details, use thin markers to color them in.
