    Instructions:

    1. Print the “Love Me Do” template. It should be

    smaller than your board or plaque.

    2. Position the template on the wood base and secure

    with double-sided tape.

    3. Use the hammer to tap the nails into the wood

    through the paper template, spacing them evenly

    along the border of your design. Hold the nails in

    place with needle nose pliers to protect your fingers.

    Hammer to a uniform depth.

    4. Remove the paper template. Use tweezers or

    needle nosed pliers to remove any small pieces of

    paper or tape that remain between the nails.

    5. Knot the DMC Embroidery Floss to any nail and

    begin wrapping the thread in a zigzag pattern. Wrap

    the thread sparingly to show more of the base or

    wrap in several layers to create a more solid color.

    6. When you finish the first color area, tie the floss in

    an overhand knot around the last nail and add a drop

    of glue to secure and prevent unraveling.

    7. Repeat the process for all colors and areas.
