DIY "Take the Leap" Plaque

"Take the Leap, and Build your Wings on the Way Down" - These words are perfect for any graduate that is starting a new life with dreams, excitement, but also fear and uncertainty.  Remember those days? That was a big jump!

This project looks complicated, but in reality, it's really simple. The saying is a sticker, so it makes it really easy to add it to any flat surface. In this project, we are using an unfinished 6" x 6" wood plaque.

Here's what you'll need...
• Unfinished 6" x 6" Wood Plaque
• Bo Bunny "The Avenue - Clocks" Scrapbook Paper
• Mod Podge
• "Take the Leap, and Build your Wings on the Way Down" Sticker by Me & My Big Ideas
• Double-Sided Foam Stickers
• Small Hook

Bo Bunny "The Avenue - Clocks" Scrapbook Paper

Let's get started...
1. Apply Mod Podge (used here as the glue) to the wood plaque. Position your paper to fit the plaque. You have a little bit of time to move the paper exactly where you want it before the Mod Podge dries.

2. Cut out the clock with the lovebirds from the Bo Bunny "The Avenue - Clocks" scrapbook paper. Use double-sided foam stickers to attach the "clock" to the plaque - the 3-D foams will create dimension to your piece.

3. Position the "Take The Leap... " sticker to the left side. Rub well all across it to make sure there's no air bubbles left.

4. Finish the piece with a small hook that you will screw in the wood.
