-Use the scrap piece of paper and ruler to make a template of the inside of the frame. You are going to need to do this to cut your Friendly Forest paper to fit. Set aside.
-Basecoat inside of the frame with Fresh Foliage. Allow to dry completely.
-Basecoat the outside and wood edging of the frame with Sky Blue. Also paint the letters for the name you would like to spell. Allow to dry completely.
-Rub the candle on random parts of the frame that you would like distressed.
-Paint the outside and wood edging of the frame with Dark Brown. Paint two coats to cover the Sky Blue completely.
-While the above is drying, use the template you made in Step 1 to cut a piece of paper to fit the inside of the frame. Use either scissors or a craft knife and mat to cut the paper out.
-Once the frame is dry, sand in random spots where you applied wax. Sand more for a more distressed look. The paint should come off easily where you applied wax.
-Use the Mod Podge to affix the paper to the inside of the frame.
-Completely coat the entire frame in Mod Podge and allow to dry.
-Affix the letters and embellishments with craft glue.
-Allow project to dry for at least 24 hours before using.
