It's Kerrie again, from WOOD Creations. Today I am here to do a tutorial on our photo boxes. This is where you put your photo on a box or photo plaque and it looks like it's on canvas. The great news for you is, we sell the photo boxes or plaques and ALL the supplies at WOOD Creations to finish this project. YAY!
I chose this project because for one, it's SO EASY, and two, it's almost Christmas time and these make such FUN and inexpensive gifts! :) I also have a step by step tutorial on our Craft Tips Tab at the top of our blog and I will also have this on my own craft blog, www.kerrieskrafts.blogspot.com, labeled at the side if you ever need it for future use. This blog post will also be on Pinterest if you want to pin it to your boards. Don't forget to follow us on Pinterest. We are also on Facebook as well and we do giveaways often--you won't want to miss out!
This is the finished project I did of my cute little family. It took me about 30 minutes to do, and that is adding the drying time on there. It's that simple! :)
1. If you miss applying a part of the wood with Mod Podge and it's dry when you apply your photo/paper.
2. If you have big clumps and don't get them out.
3. If you put a top coat on your photo/paper and the coat underneath isn't dry.
I apply my Mod Podge with a paint brush. You can use a sponge brush as well, tt's just what you are more comfortable using.
Then, once it's dry you can add some ribbon to it if you want and you are done. You don't have to add ribbon, tt looks great either way. The great thing about the texture cream is, not only does it make it look like a canvas, but it also protects your photos. This project will last for ever. It's such a fun way to display your photos in your home or to give as a gift!
