This blog is bringing out a creative side in me that had been dormant for quite a while. I feel like I am now playing catch up to the crafting world and using products for the first time that have been around for a while.
Have you ever heard of Mod Podge? I had heard of it but never used it until now. It is a glue like adhesive that glues but serves as a sealer as well.
My project today is an acrylic box which I picked up in the dollar spot at Target for $3. I have been looking for something to put my few bedside items in. These are things like lotion, chapstick and hairbands that I leave out on the nightstand so they are accessible. Instead of cluttering up the nightstand, I thought a tray or box of some sort would be a cute way to stow them.
Here is the box:
First I cut a template of the bottom of the box in paper and then traced it and cut out the wrapping paper I wanted to use.
Next you use your Mod Podge.
Here is a video which will show you step by step how to use the product Mod Podge.
While drying, I hot glued 3 small decorative knobs which I purchased from Michaels to the lid.
It gave this otherwise boring box some bling.
Here is the completed box.
I really like it! It's a great place to store those bedside necessities. It's not only functional but looks cute.
Here it is hard at work.
What new craft product have you recently used?
I'd love to hear.
