Sand paper Board Tutorial

While over at Carrie's blog Tuesday, Carrie posted about using foam core board as a positioning tool.  I'm going to try my skills at making a tutorial to show how to make a sand board with the foam core board like Carrie used.  This will make it usable for the sand board and a postioning board both.

Supplies you'll need:
Sand paper
Foam Core board --I purchased mine at Staples, Hobby Lobby has them as well in the frame dept.
sissors or old dull rotary blade
ruler
Spray adhesive (maybe)

1.  Lay your foam board over the sand paper.  Leaving the sand paper to hang over.  Cut your sand paper to size (cutting about 1/16th" smaller)  this allows you not to have any overhang so you don't catch it with your sleeve and pull the paper off the board.
2.Cut this allowance off using the foam board as your guide.
Here is what it should look like when you flip the board and paper over.
There should be a 1/16" on three sides.  If  your like me and you twisted your paper and didn't realize it, you will need to trim the other edge.
Now anyway you turn the paper it will fit just inside the sides so you won't catch the paper on anything.

3.  Gently pull the cover to the adhesive side up, taking care not to pull it off.
4.  Without pulling it all the way off, set something on this to hold it away from where your going to work.  I used my rotary blade.
5.  Place your "Clean" sandpaper to the adhesive. 
6. Press to make contact on all surfaces.
7. Close the top cover which is being held away from the work area with your rotary blade and rub gently with a ruler to burnish the sand paper and adhesive together.  Take care not to rub too hard to tear this cover sheet.
8.  Now lift away the cover sheet creasing it with your ruler.
9.  If you used a old piece of sand paper, your back of the sand paper may not have been clean and the sand paper didn't stick too good to the adhesive.  No problem, I go grab my quilting adhesive!
10.  I proceed to take this outside to spray the back of the sandpaper while still attached partly to the foam board.   I'd be safe to say, this didn't work.

So off I go to search the Mister's garage, he has to have something I can use since he rebuilds street rods for one of his hobbies.
Walaa!  I found it, I knew he had something like this out here.
This time I take the sand paper all the way off, careful again not to totally remove this cover sheet, spray the back of the sand paper "in the garage" and repostion it back on the foam board.  Re-burnish again like in step #7.  This time it works, all the edges are secure.  One side can be used for the sand board and the other like Carrie showed as a position board.   Thanks Carrie for the additional idea!

I hope this is clear and can help you make one for yourself to use.
