Instructions:

1) Paint the face of your wood piece. I painted mine white and antiqued it a bit with bronze paint.

2) Sketch out your phrase. Neatness is very important! I printed my words out on paper first and then placed them on my wood piece where I wanted them to go. I then traced them leaving an impression in the wood.

3) Paint your letters.

4) Stencil your flowers and leaves. I used a red, pink and light pink for my flowers to give them some dimension. I used pale green, green and bronze for my leaves.

The paint will dry quickly!

5) Use your stapler to staple the ribbon to the back into a loop. Then tie a bow.
