Indeed, how high is up? The world may never know.

I decoupaged this Republic of Tea tin with a vintage textbook image and accompanying text for some of the DH's stoner friends.
This is a very simple project, but I am thrilled to have hit upon the best use for this amazing image and caption.
I have been hoarding these tins and am certain to get all Mod Podgelated on the rest of them.
Hopefully, next time I'll think to check for dents in the lid before sealing on a OOAK clipping.   Tongue

I really like this, dent and all.  The dent makes it seem like it was really high and fell...

Nice work!  I have a question though -How do you keep the image from wrinkling when you apply the D.P.  I find that I have to attach the image first AND THEN d.p. the whole thing.  I want to d.p. more but I'm afraid to mess up images I've horded -so any tips are helpful!

Thank you,
 J

I have found that it helps to be sparing with the Mod Podge, and to work from the center of the image out to the edges. And if you are really nervous, practice with images you are not worried about losing.
