DIY Mod Podge PERFECT MOMENT Shadow Box Frame

It's very easy to capture a perfect moment using the Pebbles Front Porch Paper Collection to express what the moment was about. Put it all together using an unfinished wooden shadow box frame.

Using Mod Podge, adhere scrapbook paper to your frame.

• Unfinished Wooden Shadow Box Frame
• Pebbles "Front Porch" Paper / Phrases and Expressions
• Mod Podge (will be used as a glue and a sealer)
• Foam Brush
• Acrylic Paint (color of your choice - to match your paper)
• Paint Brush
• Scissors or X-Acto Knife
• Double-Sided Tape
• Photo

Pebbles Front Porch Paper / Phrases and Expressions

Remove the glass from the frame and put it aside for now. Start by painting the entire frame with the acrylic paint using your paint brush. Choose a color of paint that will match your paper. Let the frame dry completely before moving on to the next step.

While the frame is drying, trace your paper and cut it to fit your frame. You'll want to cover the front edges, and the inside back of the frame with your paper.

Once you have all your pieces of paper cut out, use your foam brush to apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to the frame (one section at a time). Position the paper on it while still wet. Adhere your photo using the same technique. Let dry. To seal, apply a coat of Mod Podge to the entire frame.

Use double-sided tape to adhere your Phrases and Expressions to your frame in the areas of your choice. Don't forget to put back the glass. Or you may decide to display it without the glass for a more opened look.
