DIRECTIONS

INSTRUCTIONS

Celebrate Board

1. Take the two 12” x12” paper for the background and cut down to 8” high. Place on the

canvas and tape down.

2. Glue the chosen paper to 12 of the chipboard circles with the Turbo Tacky Glue or

double stick tape. Use the Kelly Creates abbreviated month stamps and stamp

months onto the circles.

3. Depending on what you are using for the hooks, line up the hooks along the bottom of

the canvas. Place the circle months above, evenly spacing them along the bottom of

the canvas. Adhere hooks and glue circles in place.

4. Take the chosen paper for the “Celebrate” word and place the chipboard letters on

the back of the paper for tracing. REMEMBER to place the letters backwards onto

the paper when tracing. Trace and cut out 1- C, 3-e’s, 1- b, 1-r, 1-a, 1- t. On the sample,

we used the ink pad and distressed the edges of the letters to give them definition.

Arrange the letters onto the canvas and adhere them with pop dots to raise them.


Name/Date Tags

1. Figure out how many people/dates you want to add to your board. Cover that

number of circles with paper. You can also distress the edges with ink if you want to.

Use the Crop-a-dile to punch a hole at the top and bottom of the circles. Set in the

eyelets in the holes. Write the names and day of the month for the occasion you are

celebrating (birthdays, anniversaries, etc.)

2. Use the jewelry plyers to add jump rings to the tags and join tags together. Place tags

under the appropriate month for the celebration.
