Let's Get Started

STEP 1

Step 1

Begin by tracing the pattern of your choice, or use a heart as we, did onto 1/4" plywood. Then, using the Dremel Moto-Saw, begin in the center of the pattern and follow the pencil line to cut the charm out.

STEP 2

Step 2

Next, trace the same pattern used for the plywood onto a map of a location you have visited.

STEP 3

Step 3

Simply cut out the pattern with scissors.

STEP 4

Step 4

Now, using a paintbrush, cover one side of the cut-out plywood heart with the clear adhesive, (we used Mod Podge®), place the cutout heart directly on top of the decoupaged heart and cover again with the adhesive to give it the glossy finish.

STEP 5

Next, personalize the heart by engraving with the Dremel Micro.

Finally, flip the heart over to burn a memory into the wood with the Dremel VersaTip to add more decore to the charm.
