I love that I get to have fun working with Say It With Letters' mdf wooden shapes. I can use paper, paint, fabric---whatever I want with them! I have been asked about how I cover and decorate the wood shapes I work with each month so I decided to post a little tutorial on how to best cover a wooden shape with paper. I used the Crafty Scissors shape this time, with lots of curves and some holes so that I can show you how to work with wood shapes with those features.
- Basic Grey File Set (or a file set from a hardware store)
- Sandpaper or Emery File
- Assorted paper and cardstock (American Crafts, 3 Bugs, Bazzill)
- Diecut machine
- Crepe Paper (by Tattered Angels)
- Paint (Darice)
- Foam Paint Brush
- Garland Pieces (Joann's)
- Doily (Marukai)
- Ribbons (May Arts, Michael Levine)
- Pin (Hydrangea Hippo)
- White Glue
2. Using Scissors, cut out the shape you traced onto the paper. Apply a liquid glue to the entire wooden shape, spreading with a foam brush.
3. Apply the cut out paper to the wood shape. It is okay if it does not meet up to some of the edges perfectly -- we'll fix that with paint. You can use a brayer to flatten the paper out, especially if you're using thinner patterned paper.
4. Using an emery board or sanding paper, gently sand away any paper hanging over the edges of the wood shape. Make sure you sand in one direction only, in a downward motion. Sanding back and forth will rip and curl up the edges of the paper.
5. Poke through any holes with scissor tips or any other blunt object, With your fingers, push the excess paper through the hole.
6. Use a file with a rounded side to sand the curves of the scissor holes (or holes in your shape). Be sure to always sand in one direction, a downward motion.
7. Using a foam paint brush (not the one with glue on it) paint the edges of the wood shape white. Cover any areas on the front of the shape where the paper did not quite reach the edges. The more paint you use on the front, the more "shabby" your shape will look.
8. After the base is decorated, create diecuts, rosettes, and other items to decorate your shape with.

Paperclipping Live is doing an event on May 1, 2010, National Scrapbook Day. It's all about helping kids who are wards of the state -- check it all out here:
“Children in the custody of Social Services create Life Books to remember their lives and the people they have lived with. Life Books are simple scrapbooks the social workers, foster families, and adoptive families put together with the children. Life Books are also used as a form of therapy, to get to know the children, and to understand their situations. They are also used to help the children feel a sense of belonging. The children take the books with them as they move through Social Services. Scrapbook supplies are used to create these books, but Social Service offices don’t have budgets for the supplies they need.
They can use anything you want to give … tools you don’t use anymore; a sticker sheet that only has one sticker left on it; pens you never use; things you want to get rid of so you can have room for something else; whole sheets of paper; good size scraps you don’t want to keep; freebies you’ve received but won’t ever use; supply storage containers you don’t want anymore … you name it!”
So gather all the items you planned on selling at your next scrappy garage sale and assemble a bag for this cause. It's easy, costs you next to nothing (because you'll be delivering it locally), and helps a great cause.
Find your local contact person by contacting the state here:
Department of Social Services
744 P Street MS 19-73
Sacramento, CALIFORNIA 95814
Outside of CA?
Find your contact person here: http://library.adoption.com/articles/foster-care-specialists-by-state-2.htmlAfter you've completed the task and posted to Paperclipping about it, come here and share the weight of the items you donated. I will draw ONE WINNER on May 5th to win a $50 gift card to my Etsy shop!!Thanks for supporting this worthy cause ;)
