I have been organizing all of my want-to-do-this projects--you know the pages you rip out of magazines and the patterns or ideas you find here and there. The excitement of making these things loses its sizzle when it sits around too long, but can easily be renewed when it is "found" again. So, here's another Pottery Barn Kids knock-off.
distressing inks or chalks
foam core board
bird pattern (fits on 8.5in x 11in paper)
 Trace the pattern onto the back of scrapbook paper and foam core board. Be sure to flip the pattern over for the scrapbook paper so that the design is on the top and turned the way you want it.
 Cut out the scrapbook paper just outside of your traced line.
 Cut out the foam core board just inside your traced line. This will ensure your foam core board is slightly smaller than your scrapbook paper so you don't have to trim the foam core board.
 Chalk or ink the edges of bird.
 Mod Podge bird to the foam core board. Let sit for about 15 minutes until dry.
 Mod Podge the entire surface of the bird. Let dry completely and repeat. I did this 3 times so I had a really thick coat of Mod Podge. This made the scrapbook paper seem more substantial. I used regular paper for one bird and it was kind of ripple-y. I think it is best to stick with cardstock.
 Tie a ribbon loosely around the neck of your bird.
 Hot glue a picture hanger (either a real one or a little loop of ribbon or string) to the back and hang it up.
