You do not need too much for this project. I used: scissors, school glue, a little water, a box, a foam brush, holiday scrap paper, newspaper, and a matte spray.
First, I cut my scrap paper into little squares and rectangles. Then, to make the mod podge, I just mixed a little water with glue with the approximate ratio of 3 parts glue to 1 part water. I placed my box on some newspaper so I would not get any mod podge on my work surface. Next, I chose a side of the box to begin working on. Using the foam brush, I put some mod podge straight on a section of the box. Immediately after, I placed a piece of scrap paper on top and then I coated the piece with some mod podge. (Not too much, just a nice coat.) You may need to smooth out some bubbles in the paper, so watch out! I worked my way across the box, overlapping some of the pieces slightly. Once I finished one side, I would let that dry before starting the next.
After I finished covering the box, I did have to go around again and touch up some spots that did not stick well. I also had to trim a little around the edges. Once I had everything set, I sprayed the box with a little matte spray. The spray really made the project look a little more polished.
