Drawer Turned Word Sign Part 2

I've made a tutorial like this before,
but I thought I would share the embellishments I added
to this gift I'm giving to sweet Jadyn.
First. take an old drawer front,
and take off the knobs.
Next, drill holes in the top portion of the sign for the wire to go through.Like this pic.
Next, take your favorite pieces of scrapbook paper
and tear off the edges,
making it look old and worn.
Paint Mod Podge on the back of the paper to
adhere it to the sign.

Cut out some letters that will "pop" out from the background paper.
I spelled Jadyn's name for this sign.
After you Mod Podge the letters on the background, let it dry for a few minutes.
Then, Paint Mod Podge all over the front of the sign,
covering all the letters.
This will give it a coating and protect the letters.
Next, I traced 5 flower shapes and wrinkled them a little bit
with my hands.
This made the flowers a little more 3-dimensional looking.

Then I cut out a bird, with a tiny wing and tail
in accent colors.
Finally, I hot glued a matching button for the eye.
By the way, I hot glued the flower together,
then hot glued it and the birdie to the sign.
All done!

I think she'll like it,
don't you?
Happy Crafting, girls!

Love this--and it's a great way to keep drawer fronts out of the trash. Way to upcycle!
