I used the Under The Sea Pack by Just So Scrappy to create the design and printed it (matte finish) at Costco. I used Mod Podge to paste the photo to the board and to create a protective layer over the photo (three horizontal coats of matte finish). I then stapled a string to the top to hang it on the wall. The 1/8 inch thick board was purchased at Home Depot in a large sheet (6 to 8 feet tall and 3 to 5 feet wide). I used a piece 6 inches wide and 3 feet tall for this project.
