If you're craving the look of wood on your project, but don't want to break the bank, try popsicle sticks or wood shapes sold in craft packs at your local hobby store. I bet you could also cut custom shapes into lightweight balsa with steel rule dies.
If you're in need of ideas on how to use wood veneer, just check out these projects from our talented designers:
Practical Scrapper Danielle de Konink
used the wood veneer hexagons by Studio Calico. The small ones in the borders are misted. The hexagons randomly placed over the layout are covered with the matching accent stickers.
Practical Scrapper Nicole Laha stamped onto a wood veneer banner as a creative way to bring emphasis to the card sentiment.
Practical Scrapper Marcia Dehn-Nix
used wooden game pieces in her flower clusters and inked the edges of her wood veneer "play" to make it pop.
Practical Scrapper Malika Kelly
perched her wooden birds on a twine "wire"and added wooden feathers to complete the theme.
Practical Scrapper Mary Pat Siehl
altered transportation shapes from Studio Calico. She misted them to give them color and placed as embellishments in the hexagon shapes.

Practical Scrapper Erin Morehouse
stained some mustache shapes by Studio Calico with Distress Stain, and used Helmar Premium Craft Glue to keep them firmly in place.
