1. Paint the sides and edges of the canvases with Bright Baby Pink paint.  Allow to dry.

2. Cut scrapbook paper to fit the tops of each canvas.  Apply the paper to the canvas with Mod Podge.  Do this by applying Mod Podge to the canvas with a foam paintbrush.  Next, apply Mod Podge to the back of the paper.  Position the paper onto the canvas.  Smooth with a brayer or your fingers to remove any air bubbles.  Wait 15 minutes and top-coat with a layer of Mod Podge.

3. Paint the letters with Titanium White paint.  Use two coats if needed.  Once dry, hot glue zipper trim around each letter.  Hot glue each letter in the center of a canvas.

4. Hot glue the four canvases together.  Use extra glue on in the back to secure.  Glue zipper trim around the entire outside edge of the canvas block.
