Lucky Scrabble Sign-A Tutorial

First I took a piece of wood and painted the edges XMas Green.

After the paint dried, I Mod Podged the top of the board with a thick layer.

I added a piece of cardstock on top and smoothed it down with a scraper. I then let it dry for about 30 mins.

While the first layer of Mod Podge was drying, I cut 4 shamrocks, on my Silhouette, and a piece of cardstock to go on top of the bottom layer, and distressed them with Distress Ink and a blender pad.


I painted the rose colored cardstock with a heavy layer of Mod Podge.  I put the striped cardstock, centered on the board, and smoothed it down with a scraper. I let this dry for at least thirty minutes. You know it's dry because the Mod Podge becomes completely clear and loses all the white color.

I heavily Mod Podged over the project again.  I carefully spaced the four Shamrocks and glued them down on top of the striped cardstock.  I smoothed them down with the eraser of a pencil so they would stick well.  I let them dry about 30 minutes.

I added another heavy layer of Mod Podge to the entire top surface of the project.  I let it dry for an hour.

Using the belt sander, I sanded the edges of the board.  I then used the Distressing ink to distress the edges to blend it together.

I measured out the letters.  I glued them using wood glue.

Tada!  I'm "Lucky" to have this great decoration.
