  3. Paint the inside edges of the box and the wood mommy and me words with Soft Apple. Dry brush White Adirondack over both. Dry brush the edges of the wood pick.
  4. Trim the scrapbook paper to fit the inside base of the shadow box. Apply Mod Podge to the back of the paper, position onto the shadow box, smooth the paper with a brayer or your fingers, wait 15 min. and then top-coat with a layer of Mod Podge. Mod Podge a small piece of scrapbook paper to the wood pick.
