I used an A4 piece of paper as a template for my boards. Stick the paper onto the styrofoam board using the masking tape and then cut around it using the craft knife. I cut out 6 A4 pieces of styrofoam board.

Stick the scrapbook paper and the qoutes onto the A4 styrofoam boards using modge podge and the foam brush. I used 3 of each.

Apply modge podge on top as well. This is where the finish matters. I used modge podge with a glossy finish.

For a finishing touch, I painted the sides with gold acrylic paint and added some gold dust for a sparkly finish and texture. This is optional.
