I wanted something patriotic on my mantel. Yesterday I came up with this idea. All I did was bought a scrap board at Home Depot yesterday (I paid .51) Then I bought some scrapbook paper that I like. Then I cut the pieces in quarters. You can cut them any size you like.
Then I just laid them out on the board how I like them. Then started using Modge Podge to glue them down on the board.
Then after they are all glued on the board, cover the top with Modge Podge. Sometimes the paper wrinkles a little. I use my finger and smooth it out. Some of the wrinkles I leave because it gives it character. Then just let dry over night.
Here is my finished project.
