Covering Odd Shaped Items with Paper


  • Graphic 45 Paper
  • Masonite Shapes
  • Distress Ink
  • Distress Stain
  • Scissors
  • Sandpaper or Sanding Blocks
  • Pen
  • Q Tips
  • Craft Glue
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Begin by gathering your supplies.

    Step 2

    Using a pen or pencil trace your shape.

    Step 3

    Use scissors to fussy cut your shape. Tip: I usually cut slightly on the inside of the traced line.

    Step 4

    Glue the paper to the shape.

    Step 5

    Use the sandpaper to clean up the edges. I also distress the paper a bit by sanding. This gives it a weathered look, which I really like.

    Step 6

    Use stain on all the edges. To get in tiny nooks and crannies, I used a q-tip. I also added a bit of ink to blend in the harsh stain lines.

    Step 7

    The stain and the sanding covers up any errors or extra bits of paper.

    Step 8

    Add your to your project and enjoy!
