Mod Podge Monogram

 Last week, I did a super easy decoupage project with a cardboard monogram. 

Supplies needed: cardboard  monogram, one piece of scrabook paper, pencil or pen, paint, mod podge


Remember my $.25 paper from South Side Shopping Day.  Well, I finally got to use it for this project.

I bougt this cardboard monogram at JoAnn Fabric.  I can't remember the exact price, but it was less than $3.
Having done several decoupage projects in the past, I usually always have mod podge on hand.



Directions:
1.  trace the cardboard monogram onto a piece of scrapbook paper two times
2.  cut out the letters
3.  paint all of the edges of the cardboard monogram (both inside and outside)
3.  once the paint is dry, mod podge one side of the card board
4. firmly place one of the paper letters to the cardboard
5. continue by mod podging the entire paper letter
6. let dry and repeat steps 4-6 to the back side of the cardboard
7. mod podge all the painted edges of the cardboard and let dry




Before


After



       I'm loving the finished project!  Ignore the empty planter....that's just another project that I still have to complete.  This project was easy and inexpensive.  The entire project cost me around $3 since I already had mod podge and paint.  Even if I had to by those two supplies, this project is easily less than $10.  Over all, I'd say my $3 was well spent:)
