#Mod-Podge Birdie

Here is my little Mod Podge birdie.  I found this little wooden birdie on the clearance rack at Michaels for 99¢ and couldn't pass it up.  I had intended to put it outside in my garden, but when I finished, it just seemed to fit right into my garden window.

Mod Podge
Paper of your choice (as you can see I couldn't which way to go with the paper, but I'm happy with the choice I finally made)
Paint brush or sponge to apply the  paint and Mod Podge
Sanding block, emery board, sand paper...

1. Make your template and then cut it out.

2. Paint the edges of your bird.

3. Mod Podge the paper pieces onto the bird.

4. With your choice of sanding tool, sand the edges smooth.  For a small project like this, I prefer to use an emery board.  It works great.

Voilà! My cute little birdie.
