Love for Feathers
I know…we all do…right?!?!?!
My daughter and I were at Michael’s the other day and I found some great peacock scrapbook paper and I knew I had this box…
I’ve used this box to hold fabric samples and scraps. It’s a great sturdy box, it was just so boring! Grab the Mod Podge and voila! A Peacock Box!
I cut the paper to size, making sure it was a perfect fit for each section of the box. Then working one section at a time, beginning with the side of the box, I applied the Mod Podge, then the paper. I did not have a huge problem with bubbles, although I did have to work out a few. After about 1 hour of drying time, I re-applied Mod Podge over the finished, covered box.
For the moment, it has made its home on my bookcase in our family room. I love the way it looks with my blue vase. Can you tell it holds fabric scraps? It is so much better!
For this project, I used Matte Mod Podge and 7 pieces of 12×12 scrapbook paper. For a larger box like this, it would have been best to use a roll of paper. This particular pattern did not match up. If I’d had a roll, I wouldn’t have had any seams. I could have literally “wrapped” the box and added the Mod Podge. But, the paper was exactly what I was looking for and it was 4 for $1.00. I decided to make it work!
Any love for the peacock?
