Acrylic sealer spray
White craft glue
Print pictures and spray with acrylic sealer, both front and back. This step is important, as it will seal the printer’s ink keeping it from smearing or running during the decoupage process. Allow the sealer to dry completely.
When dry, position the acrylic shapes on top of your printouts.
Trace the acrylic shape onto the printed photo.
Using scissors cut out the shape around the photo, cutting just inside your tracing line.
Note: Alternatively, you could spray the paper before cutting out the shapes.
Find words or phrases that coincide with your photos and cut them out from outdated road atlases and old books or magazines.
Attach the words to the photos using a small amount of decoupage medium and allow it to dry for 30 minutes.
Apply decoupage medium to the acrylic shape, covering the surface completely.
Press the acrylic shape, wet side down on top of your photo. Press firmly to push out any air. Turn the shape over and use your finger to carefully smooth it and push out any remaining air bubbles.
Apply a coat of decoupage medium over the back of the photo and allow them to dry for about an hour.
Use white craft glue to attach a magnet to the back.
