Instructions

Basecoat the frame with gold paint. Allow to dry. Tear the scrapbook paper into strips that will fit around the frame. Apply a coat of Mod Podge to the frame and to the back of the paper. Position the paper onto the frame, press with your fingers to smooth any air bubbles and top coat with an additional layer of Mod Podge.

Paint the frame and over the paper with orange Extreme Glitter. Allow to dry. Add a layer of torn paper book pages over the scrapbooking paper in the same fashion as in step 1.
