Step By Step: Scrapbook Paper Mod Podge Project

Supply List
2 boards of differing sizes (the ones below are 6.5 x 11.5 inches and 4 x 9 inches)
Mod Podge
Scrapbook Paper (cut to size of the large board)
Coordinating craft paint
Vinyl Lettering

STEP ONE: Paint the smaller board completely and paint only the edges of the larger board. Allow to dry.

STEP TWO: Apply Mod Podge over the large board completely, paying special attention to the corners.

STEP THREE: Apply the piece of scrapbook paper over top of the mod podged board.

STEP FOUR: Smooth scrapbook paper down with credit card to remove air bubbles and to make sure it adheres well.

STEP FIVE: Allow to dry and then sand the edges. This removes any overhang of the scrapbook paper. It also helps to seal the edges and corners.

STEP SIX: Apply another coat of Mod Podge over top of the scrapbook paper, again paying special attention to the corners and edges so it seals properly.

STEP SEVEN: Sand edges of smaller board.

STEP EIGHT: Remove backing from vinyl lettering and apply to the smaller board.

STEP NINE: Apply a coat of Mod Podge over smaller board and vinyl lettering to seal & protect vinyl lettering. This also gives both boards a uniform finish.

STEP TEN: Apply wood glue to the back of the smaller board and adhere it to the larger board.

STEP ELEVEN: Put a picture hanger on the back to hang on the wall or display your fun new decoration on an easel!
