Instructions:

  1. First, decide how you want to hang your finished picture board. Drill a hole in the back with an angle slightly up if you just want it to hang flat against the wall.
  2. Paint the edges of your board with a paint color of your choice. Let dry for a few minutes.

  4. Wrap sandpaper around something square, I used a little note book. Lightly sand the edges making sure not to sand the paint off.

  7. Using scrapbooking adhesive, secure picture to board.
  8. Hang on wall. It is really cute to make 9 coordiating boards and hand them in a square with about a 3 inch space between them all. It would also be great to hand 3 of these above a baby’s crib. so many options!!
