( hand cut wood shapes)
It took me 10 mins to decorate and display it using an old map as my decorative paper.
Here’s how simple it was:
Trace shape and cut with scissors
(don’t have to be too neat with the cutting but you should make sure the map covers the entire shape)
I used double sided tape as my adhesive of choice..no glue mess or wait time involved with tape!
Trim excess paper with scissors.
DONT MISS THIS STEP!!!
Use sandpaper.. I was out of sand paper and used a nail file which worked just as good..
Sand edges in a downward motion to smooth edges and create a flush surface (between paper and wood)
This step also gets rid of excess paper and creates a thin white edge around your shape which gives it a finished touch!
That’s it!!!! And for $7.50 you have a unique accent piece that’s 100% handmade!!!
