I love love LOVE Kaisercraft, so imagine my JOY when I opened my kit and found this inside!!! 
First I cut the paper and adhered it to the slats.  I sanded the edges smooth before inking them.  Then I painted the wooden JOY and put it aside to dry.  I ran the grunge board through my Big Shot twice – first to cut, then again to emboss.  With JOYful strokes, I painted the grunge, zapped it with my heat gun, then applied a wash of Iridescent Medium.  My brush looked so pretty with that iridescent color that I decided to use it on the dot over the J (in JOY!).  While all that was drying, I stenciled the JOY using Glitter Paste. 
Once everything was dry, I assembled it…with….(wait for it…)….(you know it's coming)…..I assembled it with JOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!  This was quick, easy and so much fun to put together!!!  Try one!!!  C'mon.....you know you wanna!!
