**This is the one from the tutorial**
I followed her tutorial and I went to Michaels for my wooden plaque but since then I have found them cheaper at WalMart. So shop around and look for a good price because I could have saved almost $5! The whole thing only cost me $10 which is still a good deal.
So I really didn't do anything different than what her tutorial says other than not making a bar for my rings (I only have 3) and than I used Mod Podge gloss instead of matte. I did 2 coats of acryllic paint and 2 coats of Mod Podge. I will say that the bubbles in the paper really frustrated me and I tried to get them all out but there were some left. I've since learned that there is a tool called a bryer that really helps with those bubbles. You can learn about that tool and enter a giveaway to earn one over at Somewhat Simple. She will announce the winner Monday so hurry on over to enter!
I also learned that I should have measured where my holes were going to go by using the edge of the wood to line up my ruler. Not the paper that I put down. My paper was a bit crooked and so now my dowels are a bit crooked. Not too bad though. The next time I make one it will be much easier and I will know what to do. I am going to be making several of these for Christmas presents! So excited. Here is my finished project! I'm soooooo loving it!
