  • paints in dark colors, like black, green, blue, red, or grey
  • blue painter's tape
  • 1" wide flat brush or sponge brush
  • several old magazines
  • X-acto knife or scissors
  • spray adhesive
  • Mod Podge
  • simple picture frames (not shown but optional)

Step 2: Prepare and Paint Subscription Card

First, tape off 1/4" of border with blue painter's tape. Then, add a layer of a dark colored paint; here I'm using blue. Let dry completely before removing the tape.

Step 3: Add an Image
