Project Instructions

Step 1 Begin with a toner-based copy of a photo. Trace the 4"x4" canvas onto the photo and cut out.

Step 2 Apply toner-based photo to canvas using matte Mod Podge®. Refer to package directions. Let dry.

Step 3 Make pages of the interior of book with watercolor paper.

Step 4 Paint hair with pink. Let dry.

Step 5 Using grey Sharpie® marker, add text where desired. Refer to photo.

Step 6 Using Mod Podge®, apply random words or phrases from magazine.

Step 7 Once completed, mark two places where you will punch the holes for the book's spine. Use a Crop-a-dile™ to punch the holes. Line up the punch with the hole marks and push hard to puncture the canvas, doing one at a time.

Step 8 Continue to punch through the interior pages, too.

Step 9 Line up front and back canvas covers with interior pages and string a piece of yarn through. Tie a bow in the front.
