Hi Pals! It was like Christmas in June when I recieved this GIANT box of goodness from Plaid’s Mod Podge Brand. It was a seriously smorgasboard of crafty product delight! And I couldn't wait to dig in and create something. By the way, these fantastic products are also available in a variety of craft stores including Michaels. Let's get closer for a better look…
I was so thrilled to use some of these fabuous new products– especially the Podgeables and the Mod Podge Formulas.
I grabbed the Mod Podge Craft Mat, Mod Podge 7 Piece Tool Kit, 2 types of Mod Podge Podgeable Papers (Nature and Romance), Modge Podge Podgeable Shapes (Designer Shapes), Mod Podge and Mod Podge Super Gloss… and a snippet of ribbon and a formerly used glass jam jar– just waiting to be podged. It was all used to make a Mod Podge Rustic Candy Jar.
This project is simple and fun too! First I used my sharp scissors from the Mod Podge 7 Piece Tool Kit to cut a shape out (notice I used my handy dandy mat to work on). I also grabbed a correcponding shape from the Podgeable Designer Shapes.
Podged the paper and shape together…
Then used this tool to get the air out and get good adhersion.
Then I grabbed my jam jar lid and a piece of Podgeable Paper from the Romance pack.
I got a feel for how much paper I'd need for the lid and the rim.
And used the other set of scissors from the tool set to cut it out and cut "notches" in for the rim.
Podged that paper on again…
And voila'… a cute lid to be embellished.
I selected a few other pieces from the Podgeable Papers and had a blast playing with their placement.
Then I added a coat of Mod Podge Super Gloss to give it some shine.
And then I added the Podgeable Shape to the lid.
The finishing touch was scrap of ribbon and some pretty candy.
This was the simplest project to put together and it would make a great end of the year gift for teachers or a hostess present.
There's more fun to be had with Plaid!
