You'll need (Scratch and Sniff) Puzzles

I love targets $1.00 section!  I mean... Who doesn't.  When I saw these scratch and sniff puzzles I knew that I wanted to do something special and for a special gal in my life! My very first sweetheart- my mom! She loved it!

So here is the walk through of how you can make one yourself! I will say that this takes a little bit of time given that somethings have to dry before you go on to the next steps. It's totally worth it though. Also if you don't have a puzzle you could totally stop at the glitter step!

Here is what you'll need:

Signature board picture framed

A Cup full of glitter  + a stirrer

You'll also need paint if you choose to paint your frame.

Once you have all your supplies, separate your picture signature board from your picture frame. Since most of this DIY is focused on the signature board. Take a pencil and trace a guide from where the board and the frame over lap so you don't have trouble with the frame and board fitting once everything is done. See what I'm talking about below.

Once you have that done, mix your decoupage and glitter together and begin to paint it on your frame's board. I did 3 layers. Allowing for drying in between. 

This is coat number 2! Remember Decoupage dries clear.

Once everything has dried. Start using your hot glue gun to glue your puzzle pieces to your photo board and then also to your frame. I didn't get pictures of attaching pieces to the the frame of the puzzle as I got way to excited to see the results! once this is done. Use the puzzle sealant or decoupage to secure the pieces to the photo board and frame. Use the same process for the foam letters (hot glue and sealant.)

Hot Glue all the pieces to the photoboard.

Hot Glue your pre-cut foam letters on where ever you choose and use sealant!

that's my finished product! I think it's the perfect way to let someone know that you love them to pieces!!!
