I carefully measured scrapbook paper to fit in the four old drawers I brought back from Renninger's in Pennsylvania...
...got out the Modge Podge...
and slapped it on...lots of it...on both sides of the paper for good measure.
And the hour of cutting and fitting the paper? Wasted! There were big bubbles everywhere. I poked at them with an exacto knife as if I was swatting flies...but to no avail.
It seems that you are supposed to paint the Modge Podge onto only one side of the paper, the bottom, first, wait 20 minutes, and then Modge Podge over the top. Oops!
So yesterday on my way home from work, I went to A.C. Moore with my 40% off coupon and bought my first brayer.
Tonight's project will be getting out my scraper and removing all of the beautiful paper from the drawers so that I can start over. (Or...I could just artistically arrange my objets d'art right over the bubbles...hmm?)
In any case, here's my blogger craft tip of the day...no matter how excited you are to start a project...
Read the Directions First!
