My summer time was spent a bit differently this year. I did not have any problems with a work schedule to interrupt my projects as I previously had the past forty years. As normal, I like to use household items I already have in the inventory, usually found in my craft containers.
This first item, the the wooded white letter "B".
First step: Trace cardboard shape out of favorite color scrapbrook sheet. Then cut shape out with scissors.
Second step: Outside use spray adhesive on cardboard shape and then carefully place the scrapebook
sheet cutout onto the cardboard. After drying. Then start applying Mod Podge with craft
brush. Allow 30 minutes for each coat to dry before applying another layer of Mod Podge.
The Mod Podge reminded me of using decoupage back in the early 1970's.
Third step: Next step glue the cardboard to the burlap board. Making sure to center the piece and have
an even margin on each side.
Fourth step: Apply spray adhesive to back of cutout and apply on top of the scrapbook Mod Podge coated
sheet centered. The last step will be to place the White "B" letter glued and center on top.

I love Mason Jars, they bring so many memories from childhood to gardening and canning each summer.
|This jar is really a neat kitchen accessory. Stacked, it appears like a one quart jar. But it really is a set of measuring cups as shown here.|
Summer brings those nice blooming plants and just makes you want a glass of cold Southern Tea.
