How to make MDF Name Plate

Heya! It's Indira here. Today I am gonna show you how to make a MDF name plate.

This is a 'Beyond The Page MDF Floral Hanging Keepsake' from Kasier Craft. These are the contents of the pack. A rectangular plate and 3 floral danglers. 
I stuck beautiful PP with mod podge on the plate. Then I added a piece of white CS, with punched borders, on which I glued the alphabets to make it stand out against the background. This PP is again coated with mod podge for greater durability. It also lends a beautiful shine on the paper.
 I hand cut these alpabets out of glitter foam sheets to add to the name plate.
 Cover the floral danglers in the similar way as the rectangular base.
 Decorate the name plate as you like. I have added hand cut princess crown and a star.
On the floral danglers, I have printed and pasted the kid's photos.

    1. Hi Sathya. Mod podge lends a nice shine to the project but it is not overpowering at the same time. I am not sure if you get matt versions of it, but this one is not too glossy either. It just gives a magic touch to the project and makes it even more durable.
      The one I use dries winthin 15 minutes.

    2. Satya,
      Mod Podge has many variations for paper specifically, gloss finish, matte finish, for fabric etc etc. To start with pick one and use a foam brush or a flat brush making strokes in one direction only. 2 coatings work best with 15 minutes gaps between. Post that it makes the surface a dust free and a bit waterproof :)
