INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Allow to dry between painting steps.

  1. Lay the frame down flat on the back of scrapbook paper. With a pencil, trace the outer edge of frame and the inside opening.
  2. Use scissors to cut the scrapbook paper out to fit the frame.
  3. Use a #12 flat brush to paint all edges of the frame and the flower cut-out Baby Pink. Rinse brush.
  4. Apply Americana Matte Decou-Page with the #12 flat brush. Place the scrapbook paper face up on the frame; start from center and rub outward, making sure there are no air bubbles. (Follow label instructions.) Let dry completely. Rinse brush.
  5. Apply a thin coat of Clear Chalkboard Coating over the entire front of frame, following label instructions. Let dry completely.
  6. Use scissors to cut the burlap ribbon about 5” long.
  7. Use a glue gun to attach the button to the flower center and then glue the flower to ribbon and the ribbon to the frame.
  8. After 24 hours, condition the frame with chalk and write anything on frame.

HELPFUL HINTS

If there is scrapbook paper hanging off sides, lightly sand it with sandpaper when Decou-Page is fully dry.
