You will need to have decorative paper. This can be ordered online, found at the craft store in the scrap booking section, or you can save interesting design paper from the mail or from gifts or wrapping paper. Also needed is mod podge. You can have it glossy or matte, either is fine. It really comes down to what you prefer.

I also suggested a stencil. This stencil will be easier for those that what an image without having to free hand draw it. You can trace an image as well through a light box. Pick a simple object, and then you can make more complicated ones later.

You draw your image, I used an apple shape. Then tear the decorative paper into small pieces and use the mod podge to glue it down onto the image you drew, the goal is to fill it in with decorative paper.

After it dries you can use a marker and trace the edge for a border.
