Foam Tape
Glue Gun
Modge Podge
Navy chalk
Chocolate brown mist
Glossy Accents
Stickles

Instructions:

1.          Cut your Master Chef slightly larger than the back page of your recipe book so that all edges overlap by about 0.5 inches.  Adhere with Modge Podge and once dried, sand the edges off and then chalk.  Punch through the holes and attach a piece of string or twine

2.          Cut a piece of Food and Friends down to 5 x 6 inches.  Distress the edges and then stitch a border all around the piece using a contrasting colour embroidery silk of your choice.  Adhere it to the right hand side of the board using foam tape

3.          Grab all your chippies and give them a liberal coating of chocolate brown mist.  Apply glossy accents to just the title.  Enhance the cutlery set with a little glossy accents in your colour choice.  Set aside to dry

4.          Cut a strip of Masterchef paper measuring 1 x 12 inches.  Scrunch it up and then lay it flat.  Brush with blue chalk to enhance all the folds and creases.

5.          Cut a strip of lace to fit the page – 8 inches.  Adhere the lace to the bottom using a glue gun.  Adhere the scrunched strip of Masterchef to the lace (so that the lace peeks out) – you may need to trim it down to fit if it’s too long

6.          Adhere your photograph to the Food and Friends piece using either Tombow or Double Sided Tape
