Tween girls will love his project as they can attach this cute pin to their backpack or purse. A fun way to celebrate spring! To make this strawberry pin you can use scrap or leftover patterned paper or purchase one just for this project.
You will need:
Chipboard shape – approximately 2″ x 4″
Strawberry themed scrapbook paper
Matte FolkArt Acrylic Paint – Yellow Citron, Hot Pink (or coordinating colors)
Wood Letter – initial of your choice
What you do:
Take a small piece of scrapbook paper a little larger than your chipboard piece and trace. Cut the shape out and set aside.
Paint your chipboard shape and letter – since they are so small, I just painted them both on both sides. Cover completely and allow to dry.
Spread Mod Podge on the top of your chipboard shape. Grab the paper you cut and smooth down thoroughly. You can use your hands – I always use a brayer because it works *really* well. Allow to dry for 15 – 20 minutes.
You are now ready to coat the top. Give a medium layer of Mod Podge and allow to dry for 15 – 20 minutes. I also put a coat of Mod Podge onto my letter “A.”
Time to add embellishments! I used craft glue to add the letter “A,” the strawberry and then one rhinestone in each corner for a little bling. Allow to dry.
