Step 5 Measure 2" from the bottom of the plaque and draw a horizontal line with your pencil.
Step 6 Using your paint pen, trace over the first two lines you drew in pencil.
Step 7 Draw over the last horizontal line, leaving about ¼" space at each end.
Step 8 Measure three inches in on the line you just finished and make a vertical line stopping about ¼" space from the bottom. Repeat once.
Step 9 Write the words DATE, SCENE, and TAKE over the three sections you just created.
Step 10 Color in the space between arrows 1 & 2, 3 & 4, and 5 & 6.
