Instruction #1 - Americana Decou-Page Paper

Start by painting the wooden tags with the Americana Acrylics.  Paint one side of the tags and let dry.  Once dry, flip the tags over and paint the other side make sure to paint all of the edges.

Once the wooden tags are completely dry, lay them on the non-pattern side of the decou-page paper.  Trace around the edges of the tags using a pencil.  I placed the decou-page paper on both sides of a tag, so I needed to trace around the tag twice.  Then cut the traced image out using scissors.

Next, using a paint brush, apply a thin layer of Decou-Page onto the tag.

The wooden tags I bought already had a hole in them.  So, I used a craft needle to gently poke through the Decou-Page paper.  I used a paper rope to make a loop for the keychain.

While the Decou-Page is drying, I painted a few small wooden beads using Americana Acrylics.
