Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include drying time for neither the paint nor the medium nor the Mod Podge.
  • 2
    Use small saw to trim balsa wood so you have six rectangles that are a little bit smaller than the illustration board rectangles you will create in step 4.
  • 3
    Basecoat wood rectangles with Dove Grey. Apply liberal coat of crackle medium. Let dry.
  • 4
    Measure and cut illustration board into six rectangles that are the desired size (these should be a bit larger than the rectangles you created from the balsa wood in step 2).
  • 5
    Referring to application instructions on bottle, trim cardstock and then adhere it to illustration board with Mod Podge. When dry, cut off corners of rectangles as shown with scissors.
  • 6
    Apply Wicker White to wood rectangles to crackle.
  • 7
    Tape off areas that are approximately 1-3/4 inch x 2-1/4 inch to centers of wood pieces. Mix one part Wicker White to three parts each of Patina, Skintone, Sunflower, Baby Blue, Sawgrass and Basil Green.
  • 8
    Stencil each color to rectangles and remove tape.
  • 9
    Stencil letters as shown or in other desired sentiment in Licorice. Paint in any breaks in letters with flat wash brush.
  • 10
    Create loop in one end of ribbon. Start gluing ribbon to decoupaged boards about 4 inch from end of loop. Glue 1-1/4 inch down and space 1/2 inch between rectangles. Thread button after first three boards, then complete last three. Finish with another loop.
