Mod Podge Crazy!

Hello Everyone!

Today I have gone Mod Podge crazy!  Honestly, I don't ever remember even using Mod Podge.  That is something Karlee likes to use but I usually stay far away!  LOL!  I don't like messy things.  What I found today was that it wasn't messy at all and took hardly any time!  Here are the two projects I finished within an hour!



Step #1:
I first bought my chipboard letters from Hobby Lobby for $1 a piece!  They are usually $1.99 but were on sale for 50% off!

Step #2: 
Pick your patterned paper.  Trace it from the chipboard.  Then manually cut it out!  Sorry, you cannot use your diecut machine for this one!


Step #3:
Apply a THIN coat of Mod Podge to the chipboard letter.  If you do not want your paper to bubble then you need to make sure your coat is super thin!!


Step #4:
Put your cut out patterned paper over the mod podged chipboard and smooth out with your hand.  


Step #5:
Apply another THIN coat of mod podge on top of the paper.  




Step 6: 
Let the paper dry and you are finished!!  VOILA!!







Hope you all have a GREAT day and enjoyed my simple project!!

there actually is a cricut cartridge that you can use. Its exclusive to HL and their chipboard line. It cuts out all of their chipboard words and letters. HTH

You just gotta try the stuff on those tin lunch pails. With the help of some favorite papers, die cuts and Mod Podge (I like the mat finish), I have turned out some really cute recipe card tins, hot chocolate tins and hot apple cider tins. They sit on my counter for grandkids to pull out a favorite drink mix and have a hot one when they come. Thanks to Costco, my tins are always full and thanks to Mod Podge, they wipe off with a damp cloth. Virtually indestructible.

I've never used mod podge before, but from the pics and your instructions, it looks very easy. Thanks for sharing!

Robyn, your project turned out great! Mod Podge can be used for so many things.

I'm playing catch up on my blogging and sorry to hear about your friend. Will be sure to keep her in my prayers.
Hope you and your family have safe and happy Holidays.
Take care!

Looks great! I like using mod podge. It is very easy to use. How did you attach the letters to the ribbon?

It's nice to try something new once in a while. Love the Joy sign. May have to pick up some letters and Mod Podge for myself.

Sounds like fun. I've never used Mod Podge either. How did you hook the letters to the burlap ?
Thanks for the ideas !!

I bought some Modge Podge in the glossy and was trying to think up a project, thank you for the great ideas and pictures. Hope you show more ideas (I bought the biggest bottle they had) so I can keep my little crafters busy. You are the best!!!
