Ernest and Bernard are going to do a bit of decoupage, to make a fancy box. They’ve decided on a food theme, so they can use some supermarket catalogues!
First of all, they look through for pictures they like. Ernest really likes mince pies, and Bernard is always keen on a bit of cheese.
They’ve decided on the best pictures, so Bernard is cutting them out. He doesn’t have to be too exact, as the bits will all overlap anyway.
Ernest is going to do the gluing, and it might get messy, so he’s put an apron on. We don’t want anyone needing a bath at this time of year!
It’s dead simple. Ernest puts glue on the box, and Bernard sticks a picture on. Then Ernest puts more glue over the top to seal it.
Now they just add more and more pictures, overlapping them so you can’t see any edges or any of the box. It’s looking very jolly!
Bernard is just going to trim off any bits that stick out over the edge, and there! A lovely festive gift box!
There’s only one problem, says Ernest, with all those pictures, I’m feeling very hungry! Well, says Bernard, I think we’ve earned a little snack!
