Mod Podging Travel Memories
A few weeks ago, I purchased a box at Joann's to craft into a little catch-all for our desk. I remembered that I had grabbed a whole bunch of French brochures and newspapers while in Montreal. You know, the types of things that you will most likely not do anything with again. Inspiration grabbed me and I decided to use these treasures to make a mod podge creation with the box. Since our study has a bit of a Montreal theme to its decor, this was the perfect idea!
I perfected my mod podge skills while working on my Christmas box. You can read about my method here. The project went very smoothly and was easy to complete
As you can see, the box came out pretty cute and made use out of all of those random scraps that I had from our trip. (Yes, that is a parking receipt on the box.)
What I love about these mod podges is that they do not have to be perfect. The imperfection is part of the charm. Also, these are projects that kids can easily work on. Always a plus in my book!
Next time you find yourself with a stash of random travel brochures, here is a project that can put them to use!
