I have a few Quaker oats & Grits canisters, they are a thicker cardboard. I'd like to seal them to use them as canisters for pretles, gum & candy.    How best to do this? What kind of sealer will seal printed paperboard & be food safe?  I would be sealing the outside, I don't think I'd need to do the inisde, is this safe?

I just used Minwax Polyurethane on a cereal box...it turned out okay.  I bet PVA would work.  Or try Diamond Glaze.  It's 'spenive but I use it for all my altered book stuff- it really does the trick on heavier paper.  Let me know what happens!

The time has come
The walrus said
To talk of many things-
Of shoes and ships and sealing wax-
Of cabbages and kings.
And why the sea is boiling hot
And whether pigs have wings.
