Hello! It's Jennifer on the blog to share an end of the school year project I created using a few of Clear Scraps fabulous products! School is out for the summer here in Central Illinois and I thought this home decor project would be cute either as a teacher gift or to show off a last day of school photo! I used the new Apple Mini Shaker Shape as the star of my creation and will show you the techniques I used.
I began with the Circle Medium DIY Pallet Shape and painted the front using black acrylic paint. I made sure I added paint to the outside edges as well as in between the slats.
I set aside the pallet to dry to work on assembling my shaker. Using red chalk paint, I painted the top chipboard frame, as well as the edges of the two inside frames.
Using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive, I affixed school themed patterned paper to the front of the chipboard base. I cut away excess paper with scissors followed by using an x-acto knife and sanding tool (FYI, you can purchase this same sanding tool through the Clear Scraps shop).
I adhered my middle chipboard frames to the base then added colorful chunky sequins to the center. Next, I was ready to affix the acrylic overlay. Last, the top chipboard frame goes on. I added two school themed die cuts to the front for accent.
I adhered red dot paper to the center slat followed by ledger paper and a fun colorful frame. I then added more die cuts to accent before adhering my shaker to the front of the pallet.
Using my Big Bite, I punched holes at each corner of the pallet to thread ribbon to hang my project. You can also use string or forego adding a hanger.
