I think I’ve found my latest craft obsession: decoupage. I don’t know why it took me so long to get around to it, but I’m now officially obsessed! And what better pairing for my first project than with another obsession of mine, Rifle Paper Co.
I found this wrapping paper at Paper Source and knew I had to do something crafty with it. It’s too pretty to be used just once, don’t you think?
I didn’t want to wrap the entire storage box, so I decided to cut out the flowers and use them individually. I ended up leaving a bit of the background as a boarder so that I wouldn’t have to spend too much time worrying about getting perfect lines. All about efficiency over here people!
Apply a thin layer of decoupage to your surface then place your wrapping paper. Smooth out any bumps with your fingers and seal with another thin layer of decoupage on top. I was nervous that the decoupage would leave some trace on the surface, but it dried absolutely clear. Like I said, this stuff is amazing.
Let your box dry and then enjoy!
