make a Swipe File! what  you do is take magazine images that inspire you (be it for your home, life, fashion, whatever)and  crop them nicely. Then you glue them neatly onto some heavy guage paper (both sides), holepunch the paper and either put it all in a binder or make a book out of it. I mounted mine on white paper  organized them by colour which made it look really nice.

If you find some cool patterns that you like (on clothes, walls, advertisements, etc) or even tiny pictures, you can use the small, flat, clear glass stones to make magnets or tacks! Just cut it out, glue it on, trim around the stone and attatch a small magnet (ones out of shower curtains are perfect!) I've become addidcted and even make sets of them! you can also decoupage small tins with mag clippings to store them in and give as gifts!

I found the coolest pic of a winning soccer team, running across the field without their pants to celebrate their victory. A shot from "behind" it was. I decoupaged it onto a square ashtray and call it my "butt" tray. Had it for years and people keep trying to steal it! Grin I hope the pic isn't offensive.

I'm glad no one was offended.
Here's a link to some decoupage tutes.
http://www.hometalkentertainment.com/forums/showthread.php?t=17055
If you dampen paper first, it works better and won't bubble or wrinkle bad. Just the opposite with wallpaper. Better on that with somewhat thicker glue (just don't water it down as much) and dry paper. I use plain old school glue, not the decoupage meduim. I'm cheap and have had better luck with regular glue. Water it down for any paper that's not wallpaper. With practice, you learn how to cut "darts" around corners and surfaces that aren't flat. Just takes practice. Grab an old glass bottle or a round plastic ball to practice with scrap paper. I still screw up the first rounded edge on every project I do!
I hope this helps. Check out my message board (in my sig) and register as a member. We have some cool stuff there.
Again, if anyone is offended by the pic, please let me know and I'll remove it. Thanks bunches!
And, sorry I forgot to answer your question. Yep, I deco'd it from underneath and after it dried, I sprayed with about 10 coats (thin) of clear "spray paint", Wal Mart cheapie kind. I give it maybe 2 additional coats a year. I run it thru the dishwasher all the time and it has held up fine.

well for my friend's birthdays I usually make them collages from magazine clippings that describe their personalities and if they have a serious boy friend you could put his face on there or make a seperate on of him...in case they break up.

i hope no one suggested this yet but...
paper dolls anyone?
or what I like to do is combind my clippings with pictures of my friends and make a really awesome scrap/memory book.
My grandma used Mod Podge to decorate her sewing cabinet. (Flamingo theme  Cheesy)  It looked splendid I must say.

Hundreds of magazines equal hours of fun!
