Materials:

Directions: 
Use a table or large miter saw and a block 3.5" x 3.5" off a piece of pine wood. Be sure to use safety precautions. Use medium grit sand paper along all the edges. Wipe them with slightly damp paper towels and allow to dry.

Cut paper and card stock mats using a paper trimmer.  Next, layout each panel before gluing them together, so that you know where you want each piece to go. Remember to create a panel for the top side. The bottom side will be blank.
Trim the prongs off of decorative brads as needed. Use Permanent GlueTape to adhere layers together. Add decorative pieces cut from the Webster’s Panel pages with Ultra-Thin Dots. Webster’s Stickers can be applied to panels as desired.
