Alright, so cyndiq asked me for a tutorial yesterday and I'm ready to give it a whirl. Please excuse any blurry photos. It's hard to craft and take pictures at the same time. Haha. I will be as descriptive as possible. If you have any difficulties or questions, please contact me. Hope you all enjoy!!

Supplies you will need:
Paper plate
Domino
Decoupage (I use Royal Coat)
Scraper
Scissors
Foam brush (20 for $1.00 at AC Moore)
Drill and 5/64 bit
Piece of wood to drill on
Needle nose pliers
Wire cutters
22g floral wire
Sandpaper
Magazine or image

http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/67249IMG_1804.jpg

1. Select a domino you would like to use. Any size works as long as it fits the image you would like to use. Once you have selected both, lay your domino on the image.
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/67249IMG_1741.jpg

2. Pick up the paper from underneath and fold all four side of the image up around the sides of the domino. You don't have to go crazy because you will be able to see the creases.
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/67249IMG_1742.jpg

3. Take a pair of scissors and cut around the creases. Doesn't have to be exact because extra space is always better. If you want your image to lay perfect on the domino, your best bet is to continues with scissors. I personally like to take the image and tear away the excess for a rough edge type of look.
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/67249IMG_1744.jpg

4. Lay your domino on the paper plate and dip your foam brush in the decoupage. Put a thin coat (you don't want it to be goopy) on your domino and place your image where you would like it. Take your scraper and gently pull it across the length of the domino to remove any air bubbles.
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/67249IMG_1754.jpg

5. Once you have removed the air bubbles, put another coat over the image to seal it. I like to put 3-4 coats just to make sure it's sealed. However many you choose to do, your best bet is to let the final coat dry overnight.
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/67249IMG_1758.jpg

6. After your decoupage is dry, you may notice that you have had some excess drip down the sides. Take your sandpaper and GENTLY(I can't stress this part enough) rub the excess off. You don't want to go too close to the top though as it will unseal the image from your domino.
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/67249IMG_1774.jpg

7. After you are done sanding, place your domino on the piece of wood and get your drill ready. Hold the domino with one hand and place the drill in the center most part of the domino(if you are doing a horizontal image like this domino, you can actually turn it over and use the line for your center point). Apply pressure and drill your hole. You don't have to push too hard as most dominos these days are plastic.
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/67249IMG_1777.jpg

8. Grab your floral wire and using your cutters, cut a piece approximately 7 inches long. A little more or a little less is ok.
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/67249IMG_1778.jpg

9. Take your piece of wire and push about 2 inches through the opening.
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/67249IMG_1781.jpg

10. Wrap the shorter piece of wire around the longer piece. Using your needle nose pliers, squeeze the edge of the wire so it does not remain sharp.
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/67249IMG_1783.jpg

11. Make a loop with remaining piece of wire and wrap it around just as you did the first piece. Squeeze the edge like you did the first time and make sure no sharp pieces are sticking out.
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/67249IMG_1793.jpg

12. You're done! This is what you should have(minus the camera glare) haha

Thanks so much!! They didn't take long at all actually. The longest part is waiting for the decopauge glue to dry. It's nothing more than a domino, a magazine clipping, some glue, and some floral wire. As I have mentioned to cyndiq, I am going to be posting a tutorial in a day or two.  Smiley

Not offended in the least cyndiq. I think it is great that you'd like to know. I don't feel pressured either  Smiley I actually started taking photos for it at 3am when I couldn't sleep. If I don't have it up within a few hours, definately check tomorrow. I'm a crafting machine lately! haha.
