Jenniferkathyrn, I thought yours were great! I saw that same paper and thought about using it in my master bath... but now that I can't modge podge them and have them turn out the way I want them to, I probably won't do any in that room
Yeah, I had thought about adding a few more... wanted to see it on the wall first, and make sure my husband didn't freak out I think I'll live with it a little while and decide if I think I need to add a few more!
Well, I didn't buy the adhesive that is specifically for foam, but it did say it would work for foam on the can... it was just as wrinkly as the modge podge, and I tried smoothing the wrinkles out with this plastic kitchen tool I had, I tried putting stuff on top as it dried to keep the edges down and smooth, but nothing worked. It felt humid in my basement / craft room yesterday, so I was ready to blame that.... but I gave up because I was anxious to get them on the wall
Thanks I had a little pamphlet that had pointers... I just marked the styrofoam panels with a crayon, and then I cut it using a serrated knife that I had rubbed on an old candle. I was really worried about that part, but it was pretty simple.
I also saw this at Michael's this week, and couldn't wait to give it a try.The wall in our family room has been desperately needing some color since the couches were re-done. I bought 3 styrofoam panels, and cut them into 12 inch squares. I covered the edges with ribbon, and then attached scrapbook paper. Modge Podge and spray adhesive both seemed to cause bubbles, so I ended up just pinning the paper on the same way I pinned the ribbon. From a distance, you can't tell at all, and the surfaces are perfectly smooth, which was important to me. Then all I had to do was insert the picture hangers in the back, and hang them. I think they look really good, and they are just what I was looking for on that wall, plus they were CHEAP. I'm going to do something similar in the downstairs bath, but I'm waiting for some paper I ordered this week.
These look great! I made some of these today, I'm just about to post them. I tried both Modge Podge and spray adhesive, and got big wrinkles either way, so I ended up just pinning the paper, because I wanted it to be smooth. I love the paper you chose!
My Sister in Law is pregant, and due in February. My other SIL just went to visit her, so I sent along this bag
I am really happy with how it turned out. It's my first ever bag! I really love the fabric on the changing pad / case, I ended up wishing I had used that for the bag itself, but I still really like the fabric the bag is made of, too. I'm going to make another one for another pregnant sister in law. I have fabric set aside for a weekender bag too, I'm just waiting until I'm brave enough to tackle that one! Thanks for looking!
