{Step 1: Design}

Spread out your decorative material and start to design a layout. This process is iterative and will require several – possibly many – tweaks before you figure out something that you like.

Tip 1: Select materials with colors in the same family group. They will complement each other and bring the piece together.

Tip 2: Think of your big pieces first – the rest can fit into place easier. ie. I determined placement for the title, picture orientations and “Best Friend” wood embellishment and then filled in the rest, constantly adjusting my pieces along the way.

Tip 3: Rather than struggling to imagine something, I encourage you to place items in different spots just to see how it looks. Sometimes it’s just not until you see it that it clicks together. I tried the “Best Friend” wood embellishments in all four corners before deciding it looked best on the lower right.

{Step 2: Glue/Sticker it in Place}

Tip 1: Glue is very forgiving. If you place something down and it doesn’t look good, you have 30 second to a minute to adjust it depending on how much glue you added.

Tip 2: Same with stickers. I stickered “JJ’s Bachelorette” and realized it was a little crooked when I was done so I carefully peeled a couple letters back up and stickered them down again.

And then voila, you have created a masterpiece she’ll love!
