Other Supplies

1" Flat brush, Scrapbook papers, Stencil tape, Ruler, Pencil, Scissors, Black permanent marker, Small screwdriver, Sandpaper, Water basin, Paper towels


  1. Remove the metal plate from the front of the shutter. Set aside. Sand the piece edges to smooth. Paint the piece with two coats of Tuscan Teal, letting the coats dry in between. Let dry completely.
  2. Measure and cut strips of coordinating scrapbook paper to apply to shutter slats. Write in a permanent marker "I LOVE YOU" on a white piece of paper.
  3. To make the heart, cut a piece of paper the size you would like your heart to be. Fold in half, cut a half heart shape. Unfold and measure and cut the heart into strips to apply to the slats.
  4. Lay your papers print side down on your craft mat and brush on Sparkle. Apply to the slats and the metal plate surface. Smooth out by applying a top coat of Sparkle.
  5. Continue until all paper strips and "I LOVE YOU" are applied. Apply the strips that make up the heart on top of the pattern paper. Top-coat the entire piece with Sparkle.
  6. Reattach the metal plate and now hang to add a little glitz to any room.
