Instructions

1. Paint the frame with the Calypso Sky paint.  Use two coats for full coverage.  Once dry, apply three coats of Turquoise Extreme Glitter to the frame.

2. Use a circle punch to make circle shaped snowflakes from holiday themed paper.  Apply a coat of Mod Podge to the back of the circles and position on the frame.  Smooth any brush strokes with your finger.  Wait 15 min. and top-coat with a layer of Mod Podge.

3. Create the Podgeable shape design by placing the shape on holiday themed papers, trace around the shape and cut out the design. (For this design we used two shapes)  Apply a coat of Mod Podge to the back of the Podgeable shape and to the top of the paper, sandwich the two together, press with your fingers and allow to dry.  Once dry, trim any excess paper from the edges.

4. Hot glue ribbon to the frame in a criss-cross pattern.  Hot glue the two Podgeable shapes together and glue in the corner of the frame.  Hot glue snowflake gems to the centers of the snowflakes and to the Podgeable shape.
