This weekend I was in eastern Iowa to attend a housewarming celebration for two of my friends who moved in together earlier this month. I wanted to give them something personal and homemade and I thought this might be just the thing!
What you need:
This Picture Frame, or a similar one, or a small piece of wood
Carefully cut out your state of choice–be sure to coordinate the size of your map so that the state will fit on the surface. Brush a thin layer of mod podge on the back of the state. Lay state on wood and carefully smooth it down, avoiding wrinkles and air bubbles. I used a damp q-tip to wipe away any excess mod podge from the edges.
Brush a layer of Mod Podge on the back of the letters and attach to wood. Since I used raised letters I needed to even out the surface so the glass would lay flat. I used a number 1 from the same pack of letters and attached it to the opposite side of the frame.
