I know that many of you made these Family Rules Canvases last fall, but I found them a little late and just had to make my own. I won't show you all that I did, but give you the final results. Here is where I found the best directions on how to make it. I did tweek this a little, because I didn't want to go out and buy a canvas for this project. I used a piece of flooring underlayment that was left over from our Airstream renovation and had my husband cut a piece of it that was 14 X17 inches. I then painted it chocolate brown. I also wanted to use Scrapbook paper since I am an Independent Creative Memories Consultant instead of the fabric. It just made more sense to me.
The only thing that I didn't like about this project, was what several people mentioned was a problem with the Mod Podge (and I didn't figure out until I had a problem with it) making the scrapbook paper bumpy. I did have this problem, and tried to get it to stay down as best I could, but well, it'll have to be good enough for now.
For the rules I used:
Always Tell the Truth
Keep Your Promises
Use Your Manners
Say Your Prayers
I hope that you like the results. Thanks to Lindsey at the Pleated Poppy for the great idea! Oh - and all in all, I did have to buy some Modge Podge for this project, because mine had dried up (it's been years since I've used it!) so this project did cost me $7 for the bottle, but that was it - everything else was on hand. I definately have a ton of Modge Podge projects in my future with the left overs too!
