I’ve been wanting to try Mod Podge for a while. I received some tins for Christmas that I wanted to repurpose and I thought this would be a good time to try out decoupage. My good friend is having a boy, so with this in mind, I made her some gift containers.
I covered the tin lids with a piece of paper that didn’t cover the edge of the lid. I wasn’t super crazy about the unfinished look of the lids.
Well, the Mod Podge didn’t work so well on the lids. Mr. Petrie asked me if the paper was supposed to look like it was coming off. ”Uh, no,” I replied. I lifted the edge of the paper and it came right off. So, out with the Podge and in with the glue gun. I also came up with a slightly different look for the lids.
I also decoupaged an Altoids tin. I’m not sure what I’ll use it for, but it would be a cute gift box for jewelry. I think a gift card might be too big.
I love the paper I used for the Altoids tin. My mom and I did some crafting with it a couple of weeks ago.
I have a small cylindrical tin I covered with the awesome floral paper, but I need to finish it off with some black ribbon and the glue gun. I’ll show it off when I make it gorgeous!
Now that I know how to use Mod Podge, I’m pretty sure I’ll be covering every usable container that comes into Casa Petrie. If you have Mod Podge experience, feel free to comment with advice.
