Yeah, you can Mod Podge with almost any type of paper! What I used was actually wrapping paper. It is high-quality wrapping paper, but still not as thick as most scrapbook paper. If you use thicker paper, you won't have as many wrinkles as I did. I have tons of scrapbook paper too, and I almost never do any scrapbooking, but I use the paper for all sorts of decorative projects instead.

Amazing transformation! I love the mix of papers you chose. I just featured this project on Craftster's Facebook page. Thanks for sharing.  Smiley

Oh wow thanks! I don't know why it won't let you show a teaser pic, that's weird.

Thank you! Yep, I used scrap paper. It was way cheaper for me and I love the crisp corners.
YES! You can DEFINITELY use fabric! I'm assuming you'd have to use a better adhesive than Mod Podge, but you could definitely do it! There's tutes all on Pinterest with doing it on scrap paper, and I wrote one that followed through the process on my blog. You should definitely give it a try!

Yours look great! And I have Mod Podged with fabric before, it works just fine. It might slightly darken some fabrics when it soaks in, so just test a small piece first.

So, I had been looking all sorts of places for a makeup mirror, but I couldn't find any that were sufficiently pretty that I could afford. So I decided to decorate my own.

Here's what I used:



Wooden disc, mirror, paint, glitter, flower embellishments, jewels, glue dots, and a little easel stand.

And here is the finished product:

And the stand it's on is adjustable so I can angle it however I need. Thanks for looking!

Thank you! It was a lot of work, but it wasn't difficult.

Thanks! Yeah, I like it how it is.

Howdy! I had been searching for a jewelry tree that would fit in the cabinet I decoupaged but I wasn't having much luck finding one I liked and I could afford. I also tried looking for a branch to paint because I like the way those turn out sometimes, but I couldn't find a suitable branch and it's hot outside. Plus, mosquitos. Sad

So, what I ended up doing (sorry I don't have any process pics, I really didn't think this was going to turn out well) was taking some thick wire (Not sure what gauge but it came from Home Depot in a coil) and twisting it all up. When I got all the "branches" and "roots" looking like I wanted, I wrapped the whole thing in white floral tape. Then, to kind of smooth out the seams from the tape, I painted it with two coats of Mod Podge. Finally, I spray painted it glossy white. It sits on a candle tray that I also painted white.

Here it is sitting on my work table:


And here it is in my cabinet with my (kind of pitifully small) collection of jewelry on it:


Thanks for looking!

So I got this cabinet for free from work:



And I bought some paper from www.paper-source.com

And I Mod Podged it and ended up with this:





It is 2 feet square, and I think I'm going to put lotions and perfume and jewelry in it, you know, girly stuff.

Mod Podge tips: apply with a foam roller to avoid streaks. It will have a slightly pebbly texture, like an orange skin, but I usually like that on my projects. If it's still tacky when it dries (and yes even the matte can stay tacky if your climate is humid enough) then spray with a few light coats of acrylic sealant.
