I haven't posted much so far, but I've definitely been here a lot looking for inspiration!  Smiley

I've been collecting Jones Soda labels for a while, and I was trying to think of what to do with them.  Here's what I came up with! 


I bought an unfinished wood frame for $3.99 at a local craft store.  This one was great because it was for a 5x7" picture, but the edges were really wide...lots of space to work with!  Then I used black acrylic paint to paint the outside edges.  The next part took more of my time.  I had to cut and arrange the labels how I wanted them.  I like to put a little piece of scotch tape on the back while I'm doing that so that I can see what I have without sticking them down permanently.  Once I got that figured out, I pulled them off a little at a time and used glossy mod podge to glue them down to the wood.  One coat of mod podge later, I had the cute frame you see! 

I'd like to make sure it's all secured on there.  Should I give it another coat of mod podge, or is there something better to seal it with?  This was my first project using mod podge...

Really fun and very professional-looking, too! (Somewhere the Jones people are wondering why they never thought of cool merchandising like that. :-) )

Thanks!  I started making it with the intent to give it to my sister as a bday present, but when it turned out so well, I couldn't part with it!  Haha.  Guess I'll have to think of something else to give her.  Smiley

Haha I don't know if I would be able to part with it either.  I really like how it turned out, great use of the labels.  I'm going to have to start convincing my friends to drink Jones soda so I can steal the labels  Cheesy

Wow, that turned out great! I love those labels and always wondered what a good use for them would be. Nice job!   Smiley

A great idea that would work with any bottle labels, really.  (I'm thinking PBR for my barroom.)  I think I'd use at least one more coat of Mod Podge though.  I like the glossy finish myself, and I've found that it's much more durable with at least two coats.

Good jorb!
