Decoupage box

I decided some time ago that I wanted to play with decoupage. I bought a multi-pack of small bottles of Mod Podge, a blank pencil box, some small sponge brushes, and some pretty origami paper. And they sat. For months. I decided last week, though, that the box would be perfect to hold the towels I printed. The Mod Podge multi-pack included some intended just for paper, so I went to town. I did have a few bubbles and wrinkles and I think, in retrospect, that I would have liked a glossy finish (I could have just put on a second coat of regular Mod Podge), but otherwise I think it turned out fairly well.

I have some very old books with beautiful type-face that my husband salvaged for me, including some in the old ornate German type. I think coloring the pages with some watercolor and then using them as papers could work out nicely.

The multi-pack is great, especially if you're like me and have no clue what you're doing, but want to play.
Thanks for the visit and the compliment!
