If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know that Mod Podge is my go to decoupage medium. It’s easy to work with, can be used on just about anything, and helps me dip everything I own in glitter. As if it wasn’t great enough, they just launched the same formula, in COLORS! I decided to use their new line (available at Michaels and on Plaid’s website) to give my craft supply storage a little love.

Remove tag plate and screws (if your box is already assembled) before beginning. Tape off the section you’d like to tint. I suggest using washi tape to avoid damaging the box upon removal.

Spread an even layer of Mod Podge Sheer on designated area. This applicator really helps hide brush marks!

Peel tape before Mod Podge is dry and set aside.

Rest your tag plate in cork to keep upright while working. Apply layer of the sheer on the metal then cover in glitter.

I chose a thick glitter so the sheer would peek through in between pieces. Remove excess and set aside to dry.

While everything is drying, make your label. My handwriting is not the best, so I used stamps. Once dry, reassemble box and fill with supplies!
