Look of Embossing with Glue Frame


  • Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue in the gold bottle
  • Cereal box cardboard – 6” x 8” for each frame
  • Stylus – for scoring cardboard
  • Pencil
  • White spray paint (I use Rustoleum Flat White)
  • Tape
  • Chalks – either decorator chalks or the pastel chalks (sticks)
  • Brush – hard bristle (like a stencil brush)
  • Aleene’s Matte Spray Sealer
  • Clothespins


  1. To shape the cardboard into a frame, use a ruler and a stylus.Place the ruler ½” from the edge. Score the cardboard, by carefully running the stylus along the edge, keeping the ruler straight. Repeat on each side.
