Kids Name Plaque

Scrapbooking paper isn't just for creating page layouts for scrapbooks. And you don't have to be a scrapbooker to enjoy the endless variety of papers that are available. 

Scrapbooking paper, also known as patterned or decorative paper, can be used for a wide variety of projects, especially with Mod Podge. 

We are going to show you how you can create a personalized name plaque for your child using scrapbooking paper with a theme your child adores.

Crafted by Kellie.

Supplies

  • Ready-to-Decorate Plaque
  • Patterned Scrapbooking Paper
  • Wooden Letters
  • Mod Podge
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Paintbrush

All supplies for this project can be found at our Bonney Lake store.

You can use any plaque or wooden shape to create a name plaque. Kellie used this wooden panel we have available at our store.


1.  Using the paintbrush, apply the paint in the color(s) of your choice to the plaque.
2.  Set aside to let dry.
3.  Measure and trim paper to fit the area you want to place it.
4.  Apply Mod Podge in the area you want the paper and adhere the paper, smoothing out all areas to avoid wrinkles or bubbles.
Kellie used the KaiserCraft Technologic paper collection for this project. It allowed her to cut the images from the paper and use Mod Podge to adhere them to different areas of the plaque.

5.  Apply Mod Podge to the entire plaque to seal and finish.
6.  Set aside to let dry.
7.  Apply Mod Podge to the back of the wooden letters to glue them on.

The wooden letters were originally white, but Kellie painted them to color coordinate with the paper she chose for this project.

For dimension, Kellie glued the two larger robots to a wobble, then glued it to the plaque.


Wobble by Action Wobbles are little plastic springs that gives paper or an small embellishment movement and dimension.

8.  Set aside and let it completely dry before displaying.
